A new Fleming documentary was shown on the German/French TV station "arte" yesterday. Has many interviews with members of the Fleming family, but also experts like Simon Winder, Nicholas Rankin or William Boyd. Visits to book locations, book-movie comparisons etc. Very nice.


It's available online for the next seven days at the "arte-Mediathek": http://www.arte.tv/g...ming?autoplay=1


But unfortunately (not for me but for many others among us), it's only available in German and French (voice-over translation, not subtitled). Also, not certain if it can be played outside Germany and France...

Pity about the language barrier, though I'm sure Winder is aggravating no matter what language he speaks. I'd love to see the Omnibus documentary the BBC aired on Fleming just a few years after his death. Some of the interviews were re-used in the Real Casino Royale doc.
