MI6 Confidential Issue #43

Twice is the only way to live, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of ‘the big one.’ Following up the record-breaking success of Thunderball was always going to be a daunting task, so EON Productions brought in a fresh director to the series who would go on to make three Bond pictures on the biggest scale imaginable.
