James Bond’s Greatest Hits - 20:00 (Channel 4)
To coincide with the release of new Bond movie Casino Royale, this film celebrates the music which has always been key to the mystique and glamour of the Bond phenomenon. From Shirley Bassey to Sheena Easton, John Barry to Paul McCartney, and Moby to Madonna, James Bond’s Greatest Hits covers every 007 film since the calypso Three Blind Mice ushered in Dr No in 1962. James Bond’s Greatest Hits tells the stories behind the nation’s favourite Bond songs, as voted for in a nationwide MORI poll. Will viewers favour old-school favourites like Goldfinger and the famous twangy-guitar James Bond Theme over more modern Bond anthems like Madonna’s Die Another Day? And what about the Bond themes that didn’t make it? The film uncovers efforts by everyone from Blondie to Alice Cooper, which didn’t make the final cut. James Bond’s Greatest Hits includes the first John Barry interview – in nearly a decade – on his peerless Bond repertoire, as well as contributions from other key figures in Bond’s musical heritage, including Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Monty Norman, Lesley Bricusse, Don Black, Nancy Sinatra, Duran Duran and A-Ha.
