Ian Fleming Where Bond began
The documentary Ian Fleming: Where Bond began airs on BBC1 at 6.10pm.

Former Bond girl Joanna Lumley investigates the life of Ian Fleming to coincide with the centenary of his birth and this weekend’s UK release of the 22nd Bond movie.

On a journey which takes her from London to Jamaica, driving Aston Martins, firing Berettas and being surrounded by £24m-worth of diamonds, Joanna discovers how Fleming poured his personal experiences of war-time espionage, love, luxury and death into his most alluring literary creation, James Bond.

Directed and produced by Louise Hooper.

A Modern Television production.
