I’ve been a Bond fan since the first time I saw Goldfinger, on the ABC Sunday Night Movie with my dad, at the age of six. In the four decades since, I have watched every film multiple times, read all of the original Fleming novels, collected copious amounts of Bond toys books and magazines (much to my wife’s chagrin) and have written extensively about 007 on this site. I’m somewhat of an expert, though as Matt Mira states in his James Bonding podcast I’m “more a lover than an expert.”
But you CAN become an expert, thanks to some great videos posted on YouTube. Here they are:
James Bond: The True Story covers the life of Ian Fleming in detail.
JAMES BOND OO7: The First 21 Years is a great ITV documentary from 1983.
Nobody Does It Better Is a great look at the music of Bond, with fantastic interviews with the late legendary John Barry and fellow Bond composer David Arnold.
