Catching Bullets: Mark O’Connell Interview / Podcast #017

Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond fan author, Mark O’Connell joins us on today’s show to talk about his love for everyone’s favourite spy. Not only is Mark a dedicated Bondophile, he also has an intriguing link to the world of Bond. His grandfather, Jimmy O’Connell, used to work as Cubby Broccoli’s chaffeur, driving the legendary ‘Cub 1’ Rolls Royce. As a result, Mark has a unique and interesting window into the world of James Bond.

Also on today’s show, Tom tells all about his recent trip to Pinewood Studios for The Living Daylights reunion, Chris professes his love for Lee Tamahori (not really) and more of the usual Bond banter!

    Not sure if this comment will be seen bearing in mind the podcast is now so in the past, but Cubby’s CUB 1 Rolls makes an appearance in Thunderball too.

    When Bond leaves Shrublands and climbs into his AM, the car park is also accommodating Ken Adams’ E-Type and the above Rolls…

    Cheers chaps – very amusing presentations all round.
