Although the early sequels to Dr. No quickly billed themselves as 'bigger' than past adventures, nothing quite topped Lewis Gilbert's three contributions in terms of scale. With new, exclusive interviews with the director himself and legendary production designer Ken Adam, this issue reflects on the grandeur of You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker - what we've cheekily dubbed in-house as the 'monorail trilogy'.

As well as an exhaustive twenty-page production history of the trilogy, this issue of MI6 Confidential magazine celebrates the life and work of the late Richard Kiel, who played the enigmatic but lovable Jaws in both Spy and Moonraker. Making it 'big' really is a theme for this issue!

Issue #30 Includes:

The Monorail Trilogy - The Bond films of Lewis Gilbert
You Only Live Twice - From volcano lairs to villainous vixens
The Spy Who Loved Me - Nobody does it better than Cubby Broccoli
Moonraker - Taking James Bond further than ever before

Remembering Richard - A tribute to the late, great Jaws actor
