A 100-year timeline of 007 and U.N.C.L.E.

Over at the For Your Eyes Only Web site, there’s a neat 100-year timeline that, among other things, shows a century-long timeline (1908-2008) of interaction between James Bond and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The timeline (which can be viewed by CLICKING HERE) is U.N.C.L.E. oriented but there’s a lot for 007 fans also. It begins on May 28, 1908, with the birth of Ian Fleming, James Bond’s creator but who was briefly involved with U.N.C.L.E. Other familiar 007 crew names, including Harry Saltzman, Albert R. Broccoli and Richard Maibaum, also figure into it.

One example of the interaction occurs with this entry, which refers to Norman Felton, who would go on to be executive producer of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.:

Friday, Jan. 6, 1950

Norman Felton and Harry Saltzman meet at NBC offices of Robert Montgomery Presents. Felton is director and Saltzman production manager for new live television dramatic anthology series premiering Jan. 30.

A second example:

Wednesday, June 11, 1958
Robert Vaughn appears in the Wagon Train episode “The John Wilbot Story,” written by Richard Maibaum.

The timeline obviously is well researched, so you may want to check it out.
