#197: The Lost Adventures of James Bond with Mark Edlitz
This week, author, Mark Edlitz returns to the show to talk about his new book: The Lost Adventures of James Bond.
As Bond fans, we've all seen the movies and read the books, but there is a hidden world of 007 content left to discover when it comes to the 'lost' or unmade adventures.
In today's episode, Mark talks us through the ideas and outlines for Timothy Dalton's 3rd and 4th Bond films, explores the unproduced Casino Royale stage play written by Raymond Benson, exposes the secret history of the James Bond Jr. animated series, and much more.
#196: The Watches of Bond (Part 1)
In today’s JBR episode, Agents Wright and Dobson will be discussing all things horology as they delve deeply into The Watches of Bond (Part I).
Bond’s timepiece of choice has often ignited debate… which brand of watch should he wear? What is Bond’s most iconic timepiece? How much does Bond’s watch say about the man himself?
The fascination and mystery around Bond’s watches come as no surprise given Fleming was a man who appreciated the finer things in life, including what he wore upon his wrist. In his case, a Rolex Explorer 1016. “A gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit.”
Join Chris and Brian as they discuss the watches of Bond from Dr No through to For Your Eyes Only, including how the watches were portrayed, any gadgets that were utilised, and some nifty trivia along the way. There’ll be watches that are familiar to one and all, some recognised only by eagle-eyed viewers, and others that have yet to be identified!
There are also bonus watches to be considered along the way. Although not worn by Bond, they have all made a memorable impact on their characters and the films themselves.
There may even be a little Bond horology quiz at the end to round things off. So, sit back and relax like you have all the time in the world. You won’t want to miss this cracking JBR episode!

Wish I knew about this much sooner. Knowledgeable and charming hosts. Incredible content. Perfect Bond podcast.
Combining a mix of in-depth knowledge, “fan boy” enthusiasm, and sheer professionalism, “James Bond Radio” is worth every minute of your listening attention. Whether you are driving or running, this podcast should be in your podcast rotation!
Best Bond podcast. Period.
I am a new 007 fan, less than a year at this point, but I have fallen hard for the British secret agent, I must admit. I can’t tell you why it took me my whole life before I finally decided to give this franchise a chance, but better late than never, I suppose. I found this podcast an invaluable resource in my thirst for knowledge for Bond, and I have gone back and started listening to all of the old episodes. I found the film reviews in particular helpful, as I listened to them as I progressed through each of the films for the first time. Tom and Chris are so entertaining and down to earth. It’s like hanging out with friends and shooting the breeze about a mutual interest. If you are remotely interested in Bond, please do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast. You will not regret it.
