The 50th anniversary of the first James Bond film is being celebrated.
In 1962, Sean Connery brought Ian Fleming's character to the big screen in Dr No.
Since then, the franchise has taken more than £3bn in cinemas worldwide.
The BBC's Lizo Mzimba spoke to Samantha Bond, who starred as Miss Moneypenny in the films during the Pierce Brosnan years, and Brit Eckland, who played Mary Goodnight in The Man with the Golden Gun.
