MI6 revealed in July 2003

These new digitally enhanced soundtracks will be the major improvement to the releases of "Dr No", "From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger", "Thunderball", "You Only Live Twice", "On Her Majesty`s Secret Service", "Diamonds Are Forever", "Live And Let Die" and "The Man With The Golden Gun" in 2005.
Audio is not the only aspect of the films to benefit form this latest remastering. Brand new digital film transfers will be made for all the movies from "Dr. No" through to and including "The World Is Not Enough", so 007 will look sharper than ever.
After something extra special? If you are not an audiophile of picture quality expert, there will also be extras to tempt you into buying a new set of DVDs. New documentaries will be added to the discs with exclusive interviews with cast and crew members from the past 42 years, along with rare and unseen footage from the productions.
