James Bond, 007, licenced to kill – the most famous secret agent in literary history. From his Jamaican estate ‘Goldeneye’, Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, wrote numerous novels featuring the suave, sophisticated, womanising British spy.
This 8-part series, featuring four of the original stories, contains none of the films’ fancy gadgets and death-defying stunts, and presents Bond absolutely as his originator intended.
The stories, each abridged into 2 × 15 minute episodes, are The Living Daylights, From A View To A Kill, The Property Of A Lady and For Your Eyes Only.
