    The adaptation is faithful to Fleming’s original novel, unlike the 1967 movie starring Sean Connery.

    The 90-minute broadcast is also available to download for the next seven days from the BBC Radio 7 website.

    British actor Michael Jayston, who appeared in mini-series Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and currently stars in ITV soap “Emmerdale”, plays James Bond.

    Alex Jennings’ reading of Casino Royale is also still available from the BBC Radio 7 website, but hurry – there’s only one day remaining to hear episode one.
