Terry, Gary and Graham return for another podcast of James Bond chat.
We begin with a quick reaction to the title song to No Time To Die by Grammy Award winner Billie Eilish. We attempt to place it among the oeuvre of Bond tunes and reflect on our own personal favourites.
Then we turn to our main topic and ask what are the key elements that make up a classic James Bond film? Our discussion ranges from music to locations, to chases to hokey plane-car chases on snow.
File this one under general Bond geekiness. Plus, not for the first time, a robust defence of that marvellous example of absurd theatre, Moonraker.
