Newton Talks #13 James Bond Radio Play Adaptations

Aug 12, 07:43 PM
In this episode, journalist and James Bond aficionado Lee Kenny joins me to discuss the BBC radio play adaptations of Ian Fleming's 007 novels. The first was broadcast in 2008, the most recent in 2020, and they all feature Toby Stephens as Bond, as well as other recurring cast. We talk about how they capture the overall strangeness of atmosphere present in Fleming's stories, and how they provide a counterpoint to both the books and the more famous film series.
