Martin Jarvis directs his eighth James Bond for radio. It's 007’s most exotic adventure - New York, Florida, Jamaica - with a stellar international cast, recorded on location in America. Dramatised by Archie Scottney and with Toby Stephens as Bond.

In 'Live And Let Die', Bond tracks down monstrous Mr Big in Harlem. Big is importing priceless gold coins to finance Russian spy operations and captures Bond. Beautiful, mysterious Solitaire is also a prisoner.

Bond escapes. Solitaire follows. They pursue the source of the gold, first to Florida where Solitaire is captured by Mr Big's minions.

007 continues on to Jamaica. But can he survive the barracudas? Will he rescue Solitaire, recover the treasure and bring Mr Big to justice? Well, there’s a fair chance. He is James Bond!

Live And Let Die will broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday 4th May 2019, at 14:30 BST.
