Did this ever happen to the other fellas?

This episode of 'James Bond & Friends' is hosted by James Page with guests Ajay Chowdhury, David Leigh, Bill Koenig, and Ben Williams.

This week we dive into a retrospective of 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service.' As it celebrates its 50th anniversary, we look back on the film that's often dubbed the 'odd-one-out' by the media and assess how it is seen now by fans and the general public. Along the way, we muse on how American television audiences were left confused, restoration mistakes, changes to the final cut, and ponder a new way to judge George Lazenby's performance. At the end, we round out with a recap of the latest Bond 25 news and add another entry to the Bond cover song hall of shame.

The recording took place on June 21st, 2019 in the USA, UK, and Spain.
