The World of James Bond

'Bond wants a woman, they said... but three would be better!' Alan Whicker bounces around the set of You Only Live Twice, which takes him not only to Pinewood Studios but also to the film's exotic Japanese locations. Whicker interviews producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, chats to screenwriter Roald Dahl, learns the secrets of a successful Bond girl and experiences at first hand the sometimes bruising 'Bondomania' that attends the star, Sean Connery, wherever he happens to be. (1967)
