Are parts of the Bond film series becoming inaccessible to newer fans?

As we gear up for the 60th anniversary, we reflect on the longevity of the series and ask if enough time has passed now that newer fans may no longer connect to the older films, especially as the cultural context of those productions is outside of living memory for average audiences. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Roger Moore taking over the role of 007, but the end of his tenure marks the mid-point of the film series! We try and get our minds around the fact that in 2028, GoldenEye will mark the half-way point in the franchise. As we head towards the day when there won't be anyone left from the early films, we also ponder how history will be written.
