It's time to talk about The Stunts of Bond on this week's JBR. We're honoured to be joined by two Bond stuntmen - Paul Weston and Jay Richardson.

Jay had the honour of doubling Daniel Craig during the skydiving scene in Quantum of Solace. He tells us all about meeting Daniel and Olga and the process involved in filming such a complex and potentially dangerous sequence.

Paul goes way back to the Roger Moore era of 007 and is probably most recognised among Bond fans for playing a certain paint gun wielding guard in the pre-title sequence for The Living Daylights.

Grab your vodka martini, put your feet up and strap yourself in for an adrenalin pumping episode of James Bond Radio.

The Music of Bond is back with a look what many consider to be John Barry's finest work: On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

We talk about the history of the score, the key decision to go with an instrumental track instead of a vocal for the main theme, and go deep on Louis Armstrong's, We Have All The Time In The World. 

As usual we go track by track through the original soundtrack release and look at some intriguing covers too.
