For over 50 years, the James Bond films have provided some of the most memorable and exciting songs in movie history. This 90-minute special tells the stories behind 20 of the very best as it counts down to the nation's favourite. There are interviews with the people who have written Bond songs - including Sir Paul McCartney, Duran Duran and a-ha - as well as lyricists like Leslie Bricusse and Don Black.
Contributions come from Sam Smith and Spectre producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson. There are stories from inside the studio from those involved in the recording of these Bond classics, such as guitarist Vic Flick and Paul Epworth - co-writer and producer of Adele's Oscar-winning hit, Skyfall. Other celebrities - Jonathan Ross, Piers Morgan, Moby and Jools Holland, Sir Roger Moore, Honor Blackman, Joanna Lumley, Britt Ekland, and Naomie Harris - reveal their own personal favourites.
