Sultry Singer Captures London

The article is about singer Shirley Bassey. In it we learn that she was reportedly discovered by director Jack Hylton for his musical "Such Is Life", she used to work in Cardiff, Wales for as little as five dollars, and that British television has made a documentary on her life. It states that her first song was a hit even though it was banned due to objectionable content and that during her childhood she was shy but gradually became outspoken. She is passionate about fast cars, so it is fitting that she would later be associated with a certain Aston Martin DB5... [More]

With the news that James Bond is returning to ITV and the Christmas TV and Radio Times on sale, I can't help but think back to the early 1980s when I would be spending this weekend carefully plotting my holiday viewing with a highlighter pen, making those difficult choices when there was something I wanted to watch on both BBC1 and ITV, but we didn't have a VCR... 30 years ago this Christmas, I was highlighting The Spy Who Loved MeThe Spy Who Loved Me for Boxing Day...

James Bond 007 at the 1982 Academy Awards

15. November 2013 16:41 by m | 0 Comments

The 54th Academy Awards were broadcast on March 29, 1982 and hosted by Johnny Carson.

Bizarrely camp, with a dancing James Bond (thankfully Roger Moore did not take part), a very uncomfortable looking Richard Kiel as Jaws, and what was probably the last ever appearance of Harold Sakata as Oddjob, It really must be seen to be believed!
