In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, the return of James Bond after six years away, and a much-loved musical movie.

The pressure was very much on GoldenEye to reinvent James Bond 007 for the 1990s – and it would have to do so on a surprisingly limited budget too.

Not as limited as The Commitments, a film whose original financier disappeared leaving its makers to follow a low budget path.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
