The show itself is probably just some highlight clips show with nothing new. I'm curious what the choices will be, though.

I'm pretty sure this show has been on before. I seem to recall it being on when DAD was being released and there were loads of Bond type programs on to celebrate 40 years of 007.
Was it? I must have missed it then. I only remember two different Bond Girls specials which I taped and HGTV's ZipCode007.

While I have these all uncut, looking clear and letterboxed on DVD, it was hard not to watch them on Encore although they were full screen. The prints looked really good and it was so nice not having a commercial interrupting every 7 minutes like on Spike or AMC.
There were some nice promos in between films and they even had some actors and actresses talking about their favorite Bonds and films. Although Angelina Jolie talks about the guy with the gold teeth, who turned out to be Jaws, not Mr. Gold from TWINE. Things were hosted by Roger, who again gives nice anecdotes about the cars and some of the women. The man is still the best ambassador the series has had.
And I was able to DVR the Bond highlight show this morning. I will try to check it out later and give a full report.

Wasn't hosted by Roger despite the fact that it was listed in the guide as well. Although, I did see a brief clip of Roger dressed in a tux in a casino. He flirted with the female dealer. I wonder if these clips were peppered throughout the show?
The film itself was a countdown of the 10 Best Bond moments - it included interviews from George Lazenby, John Cleese, Judi Dench, Pierce Bronsan.
Not ground breaking but I'm glad I watched it.
(PS I DONT THINK THIS THREAD SHOULD HAVE BEEN MOVED TO THE US FORUM- I THINK THE DOCUMENTARY IS OF GENERAL INTEREST - JUST LIKE THE BOND GIRLS ARE FOREVER FILM)

I laugh until tears whenever David Arnold, or anyone else on these things start humming, do-do-ing or whistling the James Bond theme.
(Does Monty Norman get royalties when someone does that on screen? )
