It's time to conclude our coverage of the James Bond movie trailers, on JBR this week. Picking up where we left off with Octopussy, we go through every remaining trailer right up to SPECTRE. There are plenty of intriguing unused nuggets with lines of dialogue, judo chops and alternate shots that don't show up in the final films.

We also look at some of the latest news and rumours and we explore potential titles for Bond 25. We dig deep with a look at Fleming's work and all the continuation authors. Are there some awesome titles hiding in plain site? Find out on this week's episode of James Bond Radio.

James Bond Radio Podcast #039:

James Bond Radio is back with our review of the very first 007 continuation novel 'Colonel Sun.' We're going in deep on this one talking about everything from the quality of the opening line, the villain's plot to Bond's eagerness in the bedroom!

Also we talk about the latest SPECTRE news with the latest photos and video of an action sequence shooting on the river Thames. We look at Mr. Hinx's signature handgun and we ponder the all important question of whether Daniel's Bond would or should smoke on screen. 

It's all happening this week in episode #039 of James Bond Radio.
