    Now that is a really great adaptation. I have it on tape but I'll have to make a point of listening to that again.

    It was a pretty good clip show, couldn't argue with the lower rankings, in particular Another Way To Die as the worst, that was until I realised that All Time High and Moonraker were not even in the top 20 at all. Both are a bit pedestrian, and Rita always sounds off key to me, but I do love Bassey's MR, suppose they could have said that Sinatra and Kate Bush were lined up to do the vocal at one point, I can see that with both of them.

    Nobody Does It Better at no 5? C'mon. Sam Smith didn't get in on the vote, maybe just as well. Who voted anyway, who gets called in to do these things? Not us that's for sure. Adele at no 1 but personally I don't like that, I prefer Smith's offering, though I don't see why he is standing over Union flag draped coffins, that was Skyfall.

    No one had anything negative to say about the songs, it's all upbeat, though judicious editing of one word utterances from the films added a dose of mischief and comment.

    I missed that programme in the end-up but I hope it'll be repeated over the Christmas holidays some time so I can get a chance to record it. -{

    It might be on the itv hub ? Although to get the full range of programmes
    You have to put in an English post code ( for some reason). We alternate
    Between using 10 Downing street and Buckingham palace. ;)

    Thanks, TP.

    To be honest, I didn't even know that existed.

    You hear far more about the BBC iPlayer and 4OD it seems to me.

    I'll have to have a look online and see if I can find that programme now. :) -{

    The world's greatest spy movies Channel 4 last night ( available on demand) as chosen by
    Real Intelligence officers. A very interesting programme to see what films made their top ten.
    For Bond fans, it may be of interest that the Bond film they chose as the best of the Bonds
    Was Skyfall. -{
    They also thought that Jason Bourne was as unrealistic as any Bond, saying you
    never get spies who are Ninjas. :))

    Watching LALD tonight on ITV, I thought they'd just repeat the version they showed
    On Sunday, ( where they cut out most of Roger getting his arm sliced ). In this one
    The showed all three cuts to Roger's arm. Just thought it odd they'd go to the bother
    Of reinserting it, for a late night showing ?

    Once again I'll never understand the censorship decisions of TV companies. :D
    They cut Countess Lisl's head hitting the buggies windscreen, but left in the
    Bit where one of Kristatos's men falls in the sea and gets eaten by sharks. :))
    The shark coming up right between his legs !

    That's why I rarely bother watching Bond films on TV any more after the travesty of ITV's editing process. They cut whole scenes out of YOLT!

    Ypu can pick up the 23 film set(with the space for Spectre) for 40 pounds. An amazing bargain, compared to previous box sets.
    Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"
