    ITV1: Bond 007 at 50
    To mark 5 decades of James Bond movies, ITV1 will show every film in the series in its
    Bond 007 at 50 season.
    Source: Radio Times

    Very pleased to see ITV1 screened a superb, pristine print of Dr No on Saturday 12th May 2012 with no apparent cuts, with advert breaks in reasonably logical places - no obvious dialogue cuts - my only criticism was the inevitable voice-over on end-credits, but at least no end-credit squeeze. An excellent start to the ITV1 Bond 007 at 50 season - which also includes a Bond documentary in a few weeks.

    I hope they maintain the standard with such high quality prints - with hopefully no cuts. Please ITV1 - schedule Licence To Kill after 9pm - so it can be shown completely uncut.
    Tomorrow Never Dies is showing on ITV2 this evening at 10.45pm.

    The Bond 007 at 50 season will be ITVs final broadcasts of the Bond films - as Sky have now won the rights to show all 24 Bond movies - including Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983) - from October 2012 - on Sky Showcase in SD/HD.

    Dr No and From Russia with Love are the two best Bond films - they went down silly street after that with weirdly improbable gadgets.

    What a pity that the Bond films had to be bought up by a commercial broadcaster in the first place although I suppose the Beeb would have put the news on halfway through. Is it possible that the producers insisted upon a break during screening just to prevent us recording them ?

    I should think most people (who like the Bond films) have got all of the James Bond films on DVD, and they are able to watch a Bond film (without adverts or voice-overs) whenever they please, i have got all the Bond films starring Sean Connery and Roger Moore (my two favourite James Bond's) on DVD.

    Does anyone remember ITV trying this a few years ago? They dutifully promised to show all the Bond films in order. I seem to recall they were always screened around the same time on the same night each week.... they even managed to slip in the "unofficial" Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again into the right places chronologically whilst not actually showing them in the "official" regular weekly slot... then suddenly, without explanation, one of them was missed (certainly a later one - Goldeneye if I recall correctly...) and I'm not sure if the run didn't unravel a bit after that, with the last one or two not being shown.

    Can anyone else recall this and explain what happened?

    As much I like the Bond films,I think they have been shown a bit too much on television,whether on ITV 1,2,3,4, or whatever. Like Billy Farmer,I have the DVD's and will watch in the comfort of my own convenience.

    I do remember that BBC1 screened a James Bond film (either a Connery or Moore one can not remember which ) this was the only time that BBC screened it and not ITV as ITV normally had the contract with them all.

    It was From Russia With Love on BBC2 screened at approx. 9pm - such a refreshing change to know the film would be shown complete with no ad-breaks.

    Hoping that we've not lost steam with the thread regarding the ITV showings at present even though the Jubilee and one or two things have interrupted the cycle. Although "Thunderball" resumed the flow two weeks ago, Im posting up stuff on last week's superlative print of 'You Only Live Twice' (a) as it is specifically referred to by John Barry himself in the 'lost tapes' programme currently on BBC Radio 4 i-player and repeated on BBC Radio4 this weekend and (b) I didn't want 45 years of treasuring You Only Live Twice material to go un-noticed

    I'm not sure whether Britmovie members have realised that the BBC website has a whole section of its Arts and Entertainment section devoted to its collection of Bond interviews and features both TV and Radio:-
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/james_bond/


    and regarding You Only Live Twice a whole feature from 1967 detailing the production of the film itself.

    Well, I for one didn't know that, and I'm very grateful to you for the heads-up.

    Cheers.

    Many thanks for the excellent links, Rick, and the shot of your wonderful collection - I have the same rare film-tie-in copy of You Only Live Twice as pictured. The John Barry interview with his biographer was superb ... wish it had been 60 minutes instead of 30.

    thankyou Mrs Peel-and everyone. Have the same book/LP/magazine collections for almost all of the Bond films until Diamonds are Forever-my Dr.No stuff is on Britmovie somewhere in connection with the 50th Independence Anniversary of Jamaica this year.

    I too could have dreamed of an extra 30 mins for the Radio 4 broadcast-but it appears all the 'lost' track now utilised? Otherwise it would have been a standard documentary for the remainder. No bad thing I would imagine as I thought the interviewer (Edi Fiegel) was first-rate like others have commented.

    I don't have the following articles in my collection as they are too recently-published, but if ppl out there have a super-subscription or access to archives in the Metropolis they might wish to track down the following:-

    Review of Edi Fiegel's biography was published in Sight and Sound May 2002

    Film Review (previously ABC Film Review) has a bumper Barry feature on the composing of The Knack in Edtion 599 (Nov.2000),and also another big feature on Born Free (Dec.2002)

    Empire did a comprehensive feature in June 1998 (Number 108)

    Last, but not least, what appears to be a mega-appreciation of John Barry in the fashion journal "Vanity Fair" (n.582/Feb.2009)

    These are apart from the regular articles in "FilmScore Monthly" and "Music from the Movies" Magazine (quarterlies?)

    (Above) By getting the right index on the Vanity Fair website you too can get the on-line John Barry article from Feb.2009 (free,even!):-

    Studio photo from You Only Live Twice, fits in with my post perfectly!

    The James Bond films have been shown on television many times, look at the BFI site and see how many times From Russia With Love has been shown on television - http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/title/3...w=transmission i hardly watch the Bond films when they are shown on television nowadays, i have got the first 15 Bond films on DVD (being a fan of old films i prefer the earlier Bond films) and i enjoy watching a Bond film (on DVD) when i haven't seen one in a long time, the good thing about the Bond films i have got on DVD is that there are plenty of special features, today's Bond film showing on ITV1 is Live and Let Die (Roger Moore's debut as Bond), Live and Let Die was the first Bond film i saw at the Cinema (not first time round, but when it was re-shown at the Cinema), i have always thought that it was a shame that Pierce Brosnan didn't take on the role of Bond after Roger Moore gave up the role, i never enjoyed Timothy Dalton in the role of Bond, my favourite James Bond's will always be Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

    Today's Bond film showing on ITV1 is Octopussy (a Bond film which i can remember watching at the Cinema when it first came out), Maud Adams (who played the title role in Octopussy) also appeared in two other Bond films, she played Andrea in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) and also had an uncredited role in A View to a Kill (1985), another Bond film which i can remember watching at the Cinema when it first came out.

    A lush OTT Bond with a flavour of its own given the George MacDonald Fraser was involved

    GoldenEye
    ITV1 ... Sunday 19th August 2012 ... 10.20-12.40am

    Easily my favourite Pierce Brosnan Bond movie with two fine, extremely athletic adversaries and terrific fights featuring Alec Trevelyan 006 (Sean Bean) and Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen) ... from the spectacular opening 720ft dam-bungee-jump to the crunching tank-chase carnage in St Petersburg and Bond's double duals - two thrilling judo (Xenia)/fist (006) fights - GoldenEye has plenty of splendid, pure Bondian moments and is directed with verve and style by Martin Campbell.
    Emma

    Action adventure marking Pierce Brosnan's first appearance as 007. The newly appointed M asks Bond to discover who is behind the skyjacking of an ultra-secret NATO Tiger helicopter and the destruction of a space weapons centre inside the Arctic Circle. Bond's mission takes him into the heart of Russia to penetrate the armaments mafia.

    Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Izabella Scorupco, Famke Janssen, Joe Don Baker,
    Robbie Coltrane, Judi Dench
    Director: Martin Campbell
