In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a 007 movie that originally had an 18 month schedule, and a 90s blockbuster that started out with a 2001: A Space Odyssey tinge.

Quantum Of Solace, the 22nd James Bond film, was announced and begun when the 21st – Casino Royale – was months from release. The problems would soon stack up.

With 1995’s Crimson Tide, director Tony Scott – after the success of Top Gun – was confident of getting military approval. When he didn’t get it, drastic measures were needed.

Stories of both are discussed in this episode.
