From BBC: "James Bond seems more interested in gambling at the Casino Royale than tracking down elusive SPECTRE chief Blofeld. Then he meets Tracy, emotionally disturbed daughter of mafia boss Draco. 
Now he has a double motive: seek and destroy Blofeld, and prevent Tracy killing herself. Impersonating a College of Arms official Bond infiltrates Blofeld's Swiss mountain-top lair. He learns that Blofeld and aide Irma Bunt are brainwashing young women. Why? Is biological warfare involved? Backed by 'M' and Draco, Bond mounts an air assault. But can he pin down monstrous Blofeld? And what will happen to Tracy?

Toby Stephens is on top form as 007. A stellar cast includes Joanna Lumley, Alfred Molina, Alex Jennings, Lisa Dillon, John Standing, Janie Dee, Lloyd Owen, Joanna Cassidy, Clare Dunne and Julian Sands, with Jarvis himself as the voice of Fleming. Specially composed music: Mark Holden and Michael Lopez. 
Dramatised by Archie Scottney. Director: Martin Jarvis
. Producer: Rosalind Ayres. 
A Jarvis & Ayres Production for BBC Radio 4." Spy Vibe's look at Japanese editions here. Our Ian Fleming image archive on Pinterest here. Toby Stephens below with cast.
