    Dossier #76: The Sound of 007

    Dossier #76: The Sound of 007

    Alex and James are joined by long-time friend of the show Rick Van Beem to discuss the Sound of 007 concert at the Royal Albert Hall, part of the 60th anniversary celebrations for James Bond's cinematic outings.
    James and Rick were able to go and see the concert live, and you can watch highlights on Amazon Prime Video (or via this sneaky YouTube playlist. The trio discuss their favourite moments, the quality of performances by an impressive roster of singers (including Dame Shirely Bassey herself), and a few surprises from the line-up.
    WARNING: Naturally, this being a soundtrack-centric episode, James gets a little too enthusiastic.

    Dossier #74: Reinventing Bond

    Dossier #74: Reinventing Bond

    Earlier this year (actually, the same week we recorded this episode - so sorry for the delay), Bond overseers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson hinted that the next 007 film would be something of a reinvention.
    Which leaves us with a LOT of questions.
    On this episode, we discuss the various implications of reinventing Bond - especially in light of how dramatically Daniel Craig modernised the character - and the delicate balance EON Productions faces in trying to find a new direction for 007 after the most recent era of films.

    Dossier #72: No Time To Die
