45 minutes was all I was allowed 25 years ago because it was the night before the start of the new school term.
Nonetheless I was careful to record this partial slice of Bond in an additional section of my new diary, in doing so launching a bold attempt to document an entire year’s worth of 007 action:

What I can’t understand is why this ambitious project morphed, come mid-January, into an inventory of Children’s BBC Wednesday afternoon programming. Perhaps my diary will explain more nearer the time.
