James Bond | The changing world of 007
CHANNEL | BBC 1
FIRST BROADCAST | 27 May 1979
DURATION | 10 minutes 35 seconds
Barry Norman presents a location report from Rio de Janeiro on the shooting of 'Moonraker' (1979). Norman chats to a self-deprecating Roger Moore about the role of James Bond, sizes up 7ft 2in Richard Kiel, who plays Jaws in the movie, and quizzes director Lewis Gilbert and Bond girl Lois Chiles about changes in attitude to the secret agent's women.
Actor Richard Kiel, who played the steel-toothed Jaws in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977) as well as 'Moonraker', suffers from acrophobia (a fear of heights) and was replaced by a stunt man during the famous cable car sequence in the latter film.
