James Bond's London NBC video now online

06-Aug-2012 • Media Alert

NBC's special segment on James Bond and London, which aired during their prime time coverage of the London 2012 Olympic Games on Sunday, is now available to watch online.

The ride probably shaved a few weeks off Mary Carillo’s life, but the look of sheer terror on her face as James Bond’s Aston Martin briefly went airborne during a high-speed run through the English countryside is worth the agony. At least for viewers.

It was part of her immersion into all things Bond for a feature Sunday in NBC’s prime time. She visits a warehouse filled with props from years of Bond movies, sees a tailor to get the secrets of the Bond look and learns how to make a cocktail “shaken, not stirred.”

“It’s nice to have relief from all of the sports,” said Carillo, whose non-British specific feature on the old Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut aired Sunday morning. “You want to remind people of where you are and what the history and the culture are all about.”

Carillo, who also anchors NBC’s late-night coverage, said she’d prepared about 20 features for the London Games. “My stories are landing in different incarnations at different lengths,” she said.
