Sir Roger Moore Nobody Did It Better
Olly Smith presents this two hour radio special on BBC Radio 2 in which family and friends pay tribute to Sir Roger Moore who left us all rather shaken on Tuesday 23 May 2017.

"I’ve been an exceedingly lucky actor, and the luck of it all was that I was able to come and work for Unicef. Working with Unicef has taught me humility." - Sir Roger Moore

Deborah Moore, Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson, Gareth Owen and Sir Michael Caine look back at the life and career of Sir Roger Moore from The Alaskans to Maverick; from The Saint to The Persuaders; from The Wild Geese to The Man Who Haunted Himself; from James Bond to Unicef.
