Whicker's World - Bond Wants a Woman They Said... But Three Would Be Better!

Alan Whicker bounces around the set of 'You Only Live Twice' (1967) in this edition of 'Whicker's World', 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.

'You Only Live Twice', which took $111m at the box office in worldwide sales, was the fifth film in the Bond franchise and the last to star Sean Connery before he announced his retirement from the role, although he later returned in 'Diamonds Are Forever' (1971) and 'unofficial' Bond film 'Never Say Never Again' (1983).

↗ Originally broadcast 25 March 1967.
