BBC 4 in the UK are showing "The Real Casino Royale" - in which Andrew Graham-Dixon explores the inspiration behind Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel - followed by a repeat screening of Ian Fleming: Bondmaker - the recent docu-drama starring Ben Daniels as Fleming.

"The Real Casino Royale" is on at 21.00 (with a repeat at 0100)
"Ian Fleming: Bondmaker" is on at 22.00

I have only just watched my recording of The Real Casino Royale, which aired on BBC4.

It was a little gem of a programme which concentrated on how Fleming came to write the book. It included the longest extract of the 1963 interview with Fleming at Goldeneye I've seen (the footage looked like it had been cleaned up quite a bit, too); extracts from all three screen CRs; an examination of Bond's Bentley from the early books; and a decent interview with Daniel Craig. It was a super hour; intelligently made and respectful. It even ended up at Fleming's grave.

Do watch out for a repeat, because it was well worth seeing.

I completely missed this at the time - is there anywhere to get a copy to watch? I've been looking but no luck :-(
