BBC Radio’s production of Goldfinger: listen for yourself

The BBC Radio production of Goldfinger is online and you can listen to it by CLICKING RIGHT HERE.

For those who’ve seen the movie but not read Ian Flkeming’s 1959 novel, expect a few surprises. The BBC kept some aspects of the book that were altered for the 1964 film version.

Also, it’s kind of interest to hear a former Bond film villain, Die Another Day’s Toby Stephens, playing James Bond. Ian McKellen is in fine form as Auric Goldfinger.

Toby Stephens will voice James Bond and Rosamund Pike will play Pussy Galore in this BBC Radio 4 production that is to be a faithful dramatization of the Fleming novel.

Interesting concept with some major talent involved. Though “Goldfinger” was really one of Fleming’s weaker novels, I’m very interested to hear this version.
