the most difficult and challenging times of the narrator. Partly filmed on original Bond locations across Europe, ‘A Bond For Life’ is a gripping story of throwbacks and
accomplishments in which the James Bond films have always played a notable part.

Beside Bond experts and fans from across the globe, Special Guest Stars such as film composer David Arnold, actress Nikki van der Zyl, Lyricist and Academy Award Winner Don Black, Production Designer and Academy Award Winner Sir Ken Adam as well as actors Mads Mikkelsen and Götz Otto share their experiences with James Bond.
