Why Bond and the Beatles ruled the sixties

History Extra

A fascinating conversation in this podcast about that day in 1962 when the 1st Beatles’ single was released and the 1st James Bond movie was shown. It was “a big bang moment for modern British culture”.

Interestingly, these “cultural giants” include John Lennon who grew up in kinship care as did the fictional James Bond who was also in foster care (although it took until 1964 and 1966 for those backstories to appear in the Ian Fleming books).

Not mentioned though!
