No 24 of MI6 Confidential (English Bond Magazine)

By: FSWL team
Mi6 confidential issue 24
Publication of MI6 Confidential, issue 24 (volume 8), a special dedicated to four of the talented people behind the scenes of the James Bond films, and much more.

MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its twenty-fourth issue, SCRIPTING BOND.

All cinematic icons have their backroom stalwarts, and this issue pays homage to four of them. The screenwriting duo, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, writers of the five most recent adventures talk candidly about their years with Bond; Mark Mawston recalls a meeting with esteemed composer, John Barry; and we caught up with director John Glen for an exclusive interview, touching on all elements of his career.

Other features in this issue help it to truly span the length and breadth of Bond’s 50 years, with features on the American girls from the 1980s and 1990s, and a look at the audience reaction to Daniel Craig’s grittier Bond of the new millennium.

Articles in this issue:
• Scripting Bond - Purvis & Wade reflect on their time with Bond in an exclusive interview
• Forty Years In Film - Director John Glen recalls his rise through the ranks of 007 filmmakers
