For Bond fans disappointed 'No Time to Die' has been postponed - why not listen to a very different take on 'The Man With The Golden Gun.' Featuring Toby Stephens and an All-Star cast airing tomorrow 14th March on BBC Radio 4 at 14:45. Music specially composed by A-MNEMONIC.
Ian Fleming’s psycho-political Cold War thriller, written in 1964 and dramatised by Archie Scottney. James Bond’s obit appears in The Times, but suddenly he’s back in London with murder on his mind. Brainwashed by the Russians? M gives him one more chance - terminate international assassin, Francisco Scaramanga. Bond infiltrates the killer’s Jamaican HQ, but 007 has a conscience. Can he eliminate the butcher in cold blood? Will his cover be blown?
A stellar cast includes Toby Stephens’ return as 007, Cuban/American star Guillermo Diaz as psychopath Scaramanga, Janie Dee returns as Moneypenny, with John Standing as M and Moira Quirk as a feisty Mary Goodnight.
