Jul 3 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Skyfall

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Skyfall

Simon Pitt | Wednesday 3rd July 2013

Being thrown out of a plane without a parachute. Throwing an electric heater into a bath. Single-handedly taking out half the world's terrorists. The pre-title sequences to James Bond films feature some of the most memorable (and at times ridiculous) moments of the series. Simon starts watching and commenting on all of the Bond pre-title sequences


Jul 5 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Quantum of Solace

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Quantum of Solace

Simon Pitt | Friday 5th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. Today is Quantum of Solace, half way between a Bourne-clone and a disappointment. It gets the balance wrong, and misses out on a better twist.

3D TV - the white elephant in the room

Robert Weedon | Saturday 6th July 2013

As the BBC end their two year trial of 3D television, Robert looks at why they never really took off.


Jul 7 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Casino Royale

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Casino Royale

Simon Pitt | Sunday 7th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. Today is Casino Royale, black and white soviet-like thrills, and Russian hats.


Jul 9 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Die Another Day

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Die Another Day

Simon Pitt | Tuesday 9th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. Today is Die Another Day. North Korean face changing, space lasers and a man with diamonds in his face forever.


Jul 11 Bond Pretitle Sequences: The World is Not Enough

Bond Pretitle Sequences: The World is Not Enough

Simon Pitt | Thursday 11th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. Today is The World is Not Enough. Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist in hotpants, a man with a bullet in his brain and something to do with oil.

Classic FM's 10 best classical tear-jerkers

Robert Weedon | Friday 12th July 2013

Robert discusses a distasteful article on the Classic FM website.


Jul 13 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Tomorrow Never Dies

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Tomorrow Never Dies

Simon Pitt | Saturday 13th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. This time Tomorrow Never Dies. A remote controlled car, a newspaper mogul who definitely isn't inspired by Rupert Murdoch and fun with sat nav.


Jul 16 Count Arthur Strong's TV transition

Count Arthur Strong's TV transition

Robert Weedon | Tuesday 16th July 2013

Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show!, an affectionate and hilarious tribute to BBC Light Programme shows, has followed in the footsteps of Hancock in tranferring to television. But is it any good?


Jul 16 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Goldeneye

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Goldeneye

Simon Pitt | Tuesday 16th July 2013

I'm watching all of the Bond pre-credit teasers one after another. This time Goldeneye. A woman with a strange fetish, another space laser (sort of thing) and the Russians aren't villains this time.


Jul 19 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Licence to Kill

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Licence to Kill

Simon Pitt | Friday 19th July 2013

I'm continuing my viewing of all the Bond pre-title sequences teasers in reverse order. Today is Licence to Kill; probably the most violent Bond film ever made.


Jul 21 Bond Pretitle Sequences: The Living Daylights

Bond Pretitle Sequences: The Living Daylights

Simon Pitt | Sunday 21st July 2013

I'm watching every Bond pre-credit teaser in reverse order. Today is The Living Daylights. War games Gibraltar and fun with the KGB.


Jul 23 Bond Pretitle Sequences: A View to a Kill

Bond Pretitle Sequences: A View to a Kill

Simon Pitt | Tuesday 23rd July 2013

I'm still watching all of the pre-credit teasers to Bond films. Today is A View to A Kill, a Bond film probably set in the mind of a retired and senile Bond, as he sits in a retirement home. The Beach Boys playing on the radio.


Jul 25 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Octopussy

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Octopussy

Simon Pitt | Thursday 25th July 2013

I've been working my way through all the Bond films, watching the pre-title teaser from each. Today is the naughtily entitled Octopussy. Cuba, a tiny plane and the Roger Moore silliness continues.


Jul 27 Bond Pretitle Sequences: For Your Eyes Only

Bond Pretitle Sequences: For Your Eyes Only

Simon Pitt | Saturday 27th July 2013

I'm going through and watching all of the Bond films, starting with Skyfall and working backwards. Today is For Your Eyes Only, a sensible Bond film with an awful pre-credit teaser.


Jul 29 Bond Pretitle Sequences: Moonraker

Bond Pretitle Sequences: Moonraker

Simon Pitt | Monday 29th July 2013

I've been working my way through the Bond films, just watching the first five to fifteen minutes of each, up to the opening titles. Today, Moonraker, the worst Bond film ever made. But how does it fare if you judge it just on the first ten minutes?
