Shaken not stirred the music behind 007.se
The James Bond film franchise will turn 50 this year with the anniversary of the first James Bond film, Dr No. With more than twenty films in the series and a character played by no less than six actors and a theme song that tends to stick in the brain Into the Music thought it high time we explored the music behind agent 007.

In the program we’ll hear from the original guitarist of the now famous opening chord in the Bond theme song, Vic Flick, author and academic Jeff Smith and author, and expert on music in film, Jon Burlingame.

Music featured includes many of the title songs including ‘Diamonds are Forever’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘The Spy Who Love Me’, ‘Die Another Day’, Live and Let Die’ and ‘For Your Eyes Only’.

Production: Libby Douglas and Russell Stapleton
