    James Bond fans will want to tune in to BBC One later this month for an all-new special on 007’s creator, Ian Fleming.

    Scheduled for Sunday, 19 October at 6:10pm is Ian Fleming: Where Bond Began. Join former Bond girl Joanna Lumley (the Engish Angel of Death in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) as she investigates the life of Ian Fleming to coincide with the centenary of his birth and the upcoming release of the 22nd Bond film, Daniel Craig’s Quantum of Solace.

    On a journey which takes her from London to Jamaica, driving Aston Martins, firing Berettas and being surrounded by £24m-worth of diamonds, Joanna discovers how Fleming poured his personal experiences of war-time espionage, love, luxury and death into his most alluring literary creation, James Bond.

    Stay tuned to for all the latest news on Bond-related events happening around the world.
