Everything Or Nothing: James Bond Celebrates 50 Years On Screen offers an interesting piece on the James Bond documentary called Everything or Nothing.

Sandwiched between the Bond 50 Blu-ray collection and next month's Skyfall comes Everything or Nothing, a documentary celebrating 5 decades of 007. Helmed by Fire in Babylon's Stevan Riley, it tells the story of how James Bond leapt from the pages of Ian Fleming's hard-edged spy novels to become Hollywood's most durable movie franchise.

The talking heads range from friends of Fleming, to series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson, to five of the six James Bond stars (Sean Connery is conspicuously absent), as Riley cleverly weaves in footage from the Bond films to help illustrate the narrative.

The doc doesn't just focus on 007's big screen outings, however - author Fleming's life is covered in detail, with the former intelligence officer emerging as Bond's true alter ego, a man with a penchant for cigarettes, alcohol and women.
