The James Bond Story

As a bit of a Bond fan I was looking forward to this documentary and on the whole it didn't disappoint. Interviews with all five official Bonds were included as well as many other actors who have appeared in Bond over the years and many of the films' directors. Aspects such as violence, sex, sources and gizmos were investigated - my only problem was that each section was a bit too short but maybe one-hour was too little to cram everything in. One aspect missing was the Bond music although to be fair an excellent documentary on this subject was produced two years ago. Fun to watch, even though there was little new revealed. ****
