Episode notes

On the latest episode of The James Bond A-Z Podcast hosts Tom Butler and Brendan Duffy are joined by author AJ Black to tackle 1967's You Only Live Twice.

The team do a mammoth deep dive into the story behind Sir Sean Connery's fifth outing as James Bond 007, with the writer of The Cinematic Connery to share insight into Connery's mindset in 1967.

We explore the development of the script, the movie's production in Japan and the UK, the team behind the film, the story of its shoot, its cast, crew, the locations, stunts, and much more.

We take a look at the battle it faced with 1967's rival Bond film Casino Royale.

We also look at the film's legacy, and where it stands with the fans.

James Bond will return... in next week's James Bond's A-Z Podcast.
