"ian fleming" Discussed on Spies of London

"Was here I'm perhaps Broadway has the strongest claim to my sakes because it. Was the headquarters from nineteen, twenty, four to nineteen, sixty, six that covers the Second World War and the hottest part of the. Cold War. But in many ways I think you'll favorite. Am I six building is a bit like a favorite James Bond tends to be whoever was current when you were a child or teenager. So my James Bond Roger Moore, but my am I six headquarters is century house in Lambeth one hundred Westminster Bridge road. Now, some apartments apparently century house was where. The spies will working when I was growing up, but I still think the Broadway is the official home because it covered a period when am I six was becoming larger and more professional? However, there is a blue plaque on number two Whitehall court, which was the H- H Q ten years, or so nineteen eleven to nineteen, twenty two and it's Way Mansfield Smith Cumming worked as one of the most famous heads of mistakes still referred to lettuce see paps for chief perhaps for coming. Perhaps full court could be anything but Mansfield Smith Cumming lived in a house behind Broadway and there's a suggestion as a tunnel between Broadway buildings and his house or the basement of his house, and there is definitely a suggestion that meetings were held in that house in Queen. Anne Squire. So this shows the limits of using wikipedia for research because it misses things eight, the wikipedia article on my six buildings is very good but it's not complete on although it says that Whitehall court was the headquarters until nineteen, twenty two. Then, states that broader buildings became the headquarters in nineteen twenty four. You've got a period of up to two years there. Apparently have no headquarters toll which seems unlikely to me so. My favorite stop on the walk? The Thames Walk is Broadway buildings. It's at the junction with James's pop tube, which is where many of the staff would have arrived to work every day. It's opposite. The Old Home Office now the Ministry of Justice it's around the corner from the foreign? Office. Niece an hotel, which is a lovely classic top London hotel which was used by my six necessarily. In during and after the war and has a division belted MP's in the ball no one to go vote in parliament this and around the corner is the new Scotland Yard, which is the old Scotland. Yard. Because it's now been demolished and have moved back close to white hole. So you had Scotland Yard Broadway Sin Airman's Foreign Office Home Office. Parliament itself Downing Street all within a very short walk of each other. This is the absolute next of British government in the establishment and Broadway for May will always be the true home of am I six, the office which I am certain because I'm asked people the office which brought people onto this war and made it my most successful walk was Vauxhall Cross Fox. All Cross is the glass and steel building which appears in all of the recent James Bond films going back to Pierce. Brosnan? It's the building which gets blown up as Judi dench pox car on the bridge and looks at it in the some kind of rocket grenade goes off inside. Vauxhall crosses the building which opened in Nineteen ninety-four, which is, when am I sixty five were admitted publicly for the first time and the director generals were published or at least the names were published. So the one everybody wants to see a special, the foreign tourists, his Fox cross, and when you look at it across the river, perhaps from the bar in the more palms, which has its own spying gallery with telescopes on the first floor strongly recommended by the way or even when you look at it from the bridge, all from closer perhaps commands also costs station. It just looks impressive. It looks modern even though it's getting on for thirty years old. It's imposing. Perhaps a little bit communist and the things on the roof by the way and not guns or rocket launches. They are devices used for cleaning the windows and there is a map of the southbank outside the riverside apartments on the north bank you can see across the reverend. Plot, your landmarks that map is nicely done as a stenciling a metal plate and it has the tate. He has the Tate Gallery there. It has lots of other things just out of your sight as well. Famous landmarks from London, just round the river or behind you but it has a massive gap where am I think says so it seems amazing to me that. Nineteen ninety-four, the new parliament, the new building for my sakes everything's exciting everything's transparent and open and the developers of this park of map which explicitly, and so obviously excludes the building. Everybody's there to say am I six and this is the building that brings people onto my walk but it's the least interesting building in the hull of this history and I think partly that's because they now have a website they have an address in the phone book. If there is a phone anymore, we know who the director general's the Mystique has gone. Yes it's an exciting building. In a way that Thames House could never be bought. The mystery is calm and I, think there's a lesson there for all of us who are involved in the kind of fun and entertaining side of Cold War history is the draw the excitement around spying is because of the secrecy if you take away the secrecy, you take away the excitement. So although the American tourists love to see my sakes, they've seen it at the movies it's nice to get a photo of my sakes. Century House is not a good building. It was massively refurbish after my six left and became flats, but the name of it, the location it's nearly so immemorial the fact that it was secret at the time that am I six was based here. All adds to the mystery. So the two buildings that I really focus on a vauxhall. Qasim Broadway but I think why told called and century house a far more exciting than Vauxhall Cross so you could do a walk from Vauxhall crossed through. The southbank to Lambeth Century House why Toko Broadway Foreign Office and just do the six buildings but there was not enough in between each one to justify making people march around for that long. What we found was that no matter what the weather was doing the Thames Path is windy and cold even in July and August. So you have to be pretty determined to want to do this walk the walk I'm suggesting which takes in the former homes in the current home of a my sakes. If I was planning award today I might start at the new American embassy in. Nine. Elms. Go to Vauxhall Cross and then follow the river through the history of am I six. But. The American embassy was still in Grosvenor square when I started doing this and I also make the point on the walks that you know this is not a walkabout buildings. The buildings are the stage and what we really talking about in this podcast and on the walks off the actors on the stage and they really were actors in many cases the people who were operating overseas were actors no question very good actors who risked the lives in many cases. So although a walk takes place in a straight, which is lined with buildings and I pointed the buildings and say, isn't that amazing look of the former office of John Wick. Look at the former office of Ian Fleming look at the current office of I five. My sakes imagine who is in the now imagine what stories being told in there that will reach Aria Twenty thirty, forty years from now the stage is interesting. But it is not the story and I I keep reminding myself of this because if you if you are having a difficult day, if you can't quite find the right story to engage the audience, there is a risk that you end up pointing at breaks and say, look at that pile of bricks has not what this is about is this podcast is about and my next question to you is how long do you think my six will remain Vauxhall Cross as intelligence work changes again, since that building was opened, it becomes more electronic. A lot of the work has now moved to C. H. Q. The emphasis moved to DC HQ. In Cheltenham one of the few spy agencies that has never had a proper home in London. We did learn some time after my last walk that G. H Q. Did have a secret office in Palm Straight, which is nestled Herman's and Broadway buildings that surprise everybody because they have this state of the art circular building buried into a hillside in Cheltenham which reminds me of the Apple Headquarters. They actually carried on having this office in Parma straight until very very recently sunny just been closed and the only give away as the regulation government bollards which protect from vehicle attack other offices. We don't know about possibly when will my six move again? When he doubt grows the current building will they buy the building? Next door will dig down will they have a second building apps in the north of England perhaps oversees all of these a possible and I always try to look forwards as much as I look backwards. There is a risk with cold war history because the past is known much better because the files have been opened, the people have died in some cases. People are getting older and wanted to tell a story was still learning. There's a new book out now about Gordon Lonsdale was still learning about the sixties and Seventies. What do we not know what is happening today in those buildings which we will learn about in twenty fifty eight is very exciting and I, do like looking at the buildings I like to imagine what's going on inside but it's important to remember that the buildings are not the story and it's not buildings that excited and Fleming our final factoid about Gordon Lonsdale. He lived with the Kroger's a rice lip bungalow a short walk from Rei Northolt, which is the same runway used to spirit him back to Russia when he was exchanged for gravel win on that bombshell I hand over to Paul for his look at Ian. Fleming the man behind James Bond by Andrew Licet. Thanks poll. So. We have this week's Book Review Section which is as advertised. Ian Fleming Bhai on July set Andrew Dice. It was educated at Christ church Oxford and just been a foreign correspondent in Asia the Middle East and Africa now based in London he is a regular writer for the Times contributed to the New York Times of international publications. His most recent book was Gaddafi in the Libyan Revolution. So an establishment figure there on July set and that's okay we like establishment figure any suggestions I don't like establishment figures is simply because I'm from Yorkshire. So Andrew Dice wrote this book in Nineteen ninety-five so. Right. In the pair, we've just been talking about, which was the opening of my six Vauxhall crossing ninety four apparently the end of the cold, War but people like John McCain. Who knows what he's talking about didn't think he was the end of the Cold War what better time the ninety s to look back the life of Fleming who died before his time and lives on today through the films, many of which are most of which were not based on his books there was simply. Not enough books to supply Hollywood with this many films but the new films do reflect the thoughts in the life of Ian Fleming where they can. So the film Goldeneye is named after Fleming's house in Jamaica Goldeneye, which in turn was named after Operation Goldeneye, which is mentioned extensively in this book Second, World War era contingency plan developed in case now the Nazis invaded Gibraltar and there are other books about Fleming's commanders and Gibraltar by people at Nicholas Rankin, which you can also read our. Fabulous interesting didn't know this. Bob Marley bought Goldeneye after Fleming's death and then Chris Blackwell violent records bolted what I find in this what I find in this podcast and this research is every fact you find lead to about ten of US many of my spy friends in the UK off massive Fleming funds and I was never a massive Fleming recently read his books and the first couple of casino. Royale. Was Living Die Man with the Golden Gun I read a couple of the early ones and thought yet these great fabulous stories great plots ease to read not too long fabulous. They helped me to understand James Bond as Ian Fleming. Saw Him which is not how many of the actors and producers see him I have to say in the same way that Alec Guinness wasn't George Smiley but he kind of was Lachey more is definitely, not James Bond. Possibly Daniel Craig. Closest. But maybe it's too soon to tell the point is that James Bond is significantly more famous than inflaming. He can't say that about George Smiley although you might have seen the smiley film, you might have seen the Smiley show you might have read the Smiley books. Isn't the hero the hero if anything is the secrecy and the story and the way the characters work against each other were James. Bond is definitely the hero. He's outgrown Ian Fleming, he's outlived Ian Fleming sadly, but I have an interesting observation to make here apart from the fact, this book is brilliant. I was intrastate doing my recent research on the side project about touchingly firmer the famous kidnapped of the general on. Crete in the second. World War partly, firmer became a writer. In fact was a writer before the war and got involved in SA and had this crazy plan to opt out to German general, which was successful. Practically farmer was a friend of an Fleming and new in Fleming before and during the writing of Casino Royale the first book I have previously and I am about to repeat this claim stated that practically firmer is one of the people in Fleming had. In mind when he created James Bond the reason I say this beyond what I've said is that one of polyphemus books is referenced in a bond novel and I would leave it to the listener to determine which book which novel and all the rest of it, and I will tell you next time. So looking more closely at license book and this was recommended to me by a friend the publishers claiming that this was the definitive biography. Of Fleming and I am not in a position to argue with that, you can see his relationship developing with neo who became an fleming the the lady on, and then you wonder whether the lady and Fleming had any relation to the lady and Smiley who was George Smiley's wife and you come to the conclusion that they are the same person and then you see again, just how overlapping the world of fiction is with real life espionage. So we have Fleming's relationship without O.`Neil, we have Goldeneye the operation he was involved with the Second World War. This relationship continued for fifteen years ending in marriage only after she became pregnant a second time two months before the wedding to soothe his frayed nerves fleming sat down to write casino. Royale. So began the long line of bond novels, which in this volume are given their fullest publishing history. So, this is a book which is supposed to be about inflaming, which is really about James Bond Fleming died in August nineteen, sixty four at the age of fifty six and it's a tragedy for everybody who likes James Bond Films and the books that Fleming. Didn't get to write more of them. Of course, he has been brought back from the dead by people. Anthony. Horowitz, there are new Fleming novels. Written as Ian Fleming in the style of Ian Fleming just as there are new bond stories in the films and I don't mind that the Anthony Horowitz book in particular is very good. I. Understand the brand I understand how powerful a rights as voice can be. You can imagine years from now somebody writing JK rolling on any of the top writings Gel Tolkien has never been done as far as. I know but it could be and it shows how powerful the brand the logo, the idea of a writer, the way beyond the right to themselves is harder now but in the sixties and earlier than that, the rights are really was just to name they didn't go on twitter all the time they weren't on the radio and TV all the time. The wasn't Dan gravy train of thought platform of. Marketing that goes into a book now. So to many people in Fleming was just a name therefore, there is no reason why that name cannot continue. I do not have an issue with that. Know some people do but what you find what I find when you learn about writers more and you learn about that past in their presence and their lives a sometimes, you liked them a little bit less just a little bit because and it takes one to know one writers are not the nicest people to know inflaming super unusual in the sense that he liked. The parties as much like the right thing and he liked the secrecy as much as like the promotion but generally, writers are obsessive introverted, Headstrong stubborn. You have to be to finish a book never mind twenty bucks or thirty books and the more I get to know right as all right as even John mckerrow Ian. Fleming whoever the more you realize that perhaps they weren't the easiest people to live with, and that is a risk that you take on. When you read a biography like this. Now I have a distance from inflaming because I'm not a massive. To the death bond fan although I do appreciate the books in the films there is a risk if you are a a nailed on bond fan that you will think less of and Fleming after this book but that's a very small part of the story the major part for me the really eye-opening. An exciting thing is that Ian Fleming was every bit the spy that James Bond became. Now he did work in the background very often, but not always he was in danger there was an episode by when they got shot in ship and nearly sunk nearly. Killed and it was sheer fluke that they all survived but generally, he was a back room operator. So in Fleming was much more as I see it like jokes smiley in the shadows, putting out ideas for operations, planning them, but not carrying them out but there were elements in his past in the second. World War when he did put himself in danger. Ian Fleming was a wartime hero. He is a great writer and he should have had the chance to write more books and July and a really good job the some nice photos in the middle. You can hopefully hear me flicking through it right now. I, still have it. Hey, I actually own this copy and yes, he had aspects of as private life which were challenging difficult. But there's a picture of him here at Goldeneye with the Lady Anne Cecil Beaton no coward an unnamed friends he knew practically firmer. He was the Jonah Keri his day and you have to wonder as I have before in the same way that say Patrick O'Brien was the replacement for the guy who wrote home blower was John Licari to place free and Fleming wool. Know, there is a coincidence in the timings. So John Kerry's career was just starting to take off when in Fleming died, but you cannot compare the John Keri books which are very strongly character lead introspective books about mentally challenging intellectually challenging ideas with James Bond who is a gun toting licensed to care ladies man partygoer which have a bond you look at. There are women, guns, and alcohol. So No, the car was not the replacement for inflaming thousand coincidence. But. Perhaps. He's publishes hoped for a little bit more plot and it'll be less counter from John. We don't know you can even get this first edition hardback for not very much money I think this one's on read borough. Bastille informing on July set the man behind James. Bond is equally about James Bond himself and I really enjoyed it. Okay. Thanks. Paul. It does rumble that at the end there but I think you got the message that he liked the book. Okay. So coming next time we have a special book for you. It's called the new spies by James Atoms and it was written in the early nineties. When am I sex became public knowledge and it's looking at the future of? Espionage. So I acquired this book when it came out in the early nineties and I've just found it on the shelf and I'm dying to say how accurate James was given everything that's happened in the last thirty years when he looked forwards from the early nineties to the present time. So that's coming next time the new spies by James Atoms if you reading it ahead of us. Thanks so much for listening. We do appreciate you listening. We do appreciate reviews however you listen to podcasts there's usually a way to start or review it in some way and those reviews are read by me. They do help us please do get in touch you want to provide feedback spies, of London, will return..

Bond Girl Style, an inteview with Dr. Monica German

"Dr Drew Thank you so so much for joining us today. I have to say that I am a huge bond fan and a have been since I was a small child and I've seen all the movies more than once source super excited to see your book come out a few months ago. Congratulations thank you. Yeah but before we get to this bevy of beautiful women who have graced the bond John Franchise for more than seventy years now. I'm hoping that we can talk a little bit about the man behind the creation of the character of James Bond who was of course Ian Enflaming and he was quite personality in his own right. Am I correct. Absolutely to Ian Fleming was a Scottish man and no so many people realize that and then and bone these also a scotsman or half is called smitten anyway so many overlaps Fleming came came from an upper class background as bond climbing works in naval intelligence in the Second World War and so therefore he had that kind of background background in espionage on the secret services in the world of intelligence which excited him an interested in so a lot of the detail we found in the if we find in the novels is very much detail that came from slamming own experience director experience hope the world and the World Intelligence Fleming also was on various. He liked sports from his days at school. Due to these middle age he also enjoyed an defying things in life. Alcohol and Fine foods sounds simple foods but rich foods while and women plenty of them many affairs he was only married once but he had many affairs before jury and during the marriage it was sort of open marriage. I'm rather mia who then became enflamming. Of course it was also very interested in in experimenting in having relationships other than within Fleming. So so there's lots of overlap savage say between Ian Fleming James on that. I think that's also why people have been intrigued to find out about about the author behind the Noble Global Sin Short Stories. Yeah and I think that many of our listeners may not have known at the bond films were actually I based on the books and the he wrote thirteen books folks and also a handful of stories and in even as big a fan as I am. I didn't realize that Casino Royale was Fleming's very first book which was published in Nineteen. I'm fifty three. And of course it's most recent film on Carnation was the first of the bond series to star Daniel Craig back in two thousand twelve so your your book looks at Fleming's writings the books and the films. Several of these films like Casino Royale were adapted and produced decades AIDS after the books are written and many of the narratives in both books and the movies surrounding race and gender. Fill very problematic when we look at them today and this is something that you confront head on in your book like you do not shy away from this at all which was much appreciated. Might you give us a couple of examples of how some of the classic themes that we see in bond can be problematic today to contemporary audiences. Sure a mean first of all I also wanted to point out the Casino Royale was in fact I adopted in nineteen sixty seven and starred. They even this was not not a production by Company that's behind the bond franchise using independent company and really it doesn't count ended unobtainable Only takes teams loosely than the sense into a rather bizarre kind of plock. Let's just just for the sake of accuracy was casino royale before Daniel Craig's star in it yet but anyway going back to your question about gender and race you're Accident Erard said when you read the novels and when you see many of the particularly early Mondays you realize particularly with today's hindsight fight. I guess that's There are problematic relationships that are going on both in terms of race ending terms agenda. He when you look against the origins of bond in the nineteen fifties. This is a moment in time where Breton while Europe the world had been shaken up by the Second Second World War many changes had occurred in the social fabric particularly off Britain. The British empire was coming to a rapid end and The gender relations had been shaken up by the war as well because Women had been taking jobs. That had been laughed laughed at without men. Men were all the front. So women had to make the most difficult situation and as a result again to nineteen four- these women were out stronger in a stronger position than they were before the war so in the bombed novels and some of the earlier earlier films you do see tensions at work bond is a very conservative bigger. He represents a kind kind of masculinity that's in any way regressive already at the time of Fleming's writing it's a kind kind of masculinity that's still thinking of you know the kind of masculine heroism the would've been fueled by the world workers offers and I kinda masculinity that was still very much British upper-class and white now the the end of the war the end of the colonial venture the end of the Endel dot kind of masculinity so bond is very much the center of a world that doesn't exist anymore or a world is beginning to vanish. This strong women around him challenge is masculinity challenge gender roles through their emancipated behaviors and patterns of behavior that appear throughout novels and and the early films. Now Bunk reacts badly today's bond is to dominate women. Bolton's bonus patronizing to them Bondi's also condescending to people of color and they race relations in the books and the early films can also be rather difficult today. Just this in this day and age. Because there is a clear binary a position between bombs upper-class wind British ways and and the ways of the foreign villains the customs of the people he encounters and interact with when he's he's overseas so yes you're absolutely right. Gender and Rice are incredibly programmatic ended and the politics attached to them are difficult but nevertheless it's skewed because the nobles in the film's expose the problems that we can then discuss today right right and ultimately you you came away with this incredibly well formed argument that as you right. I'm going to quote you. Hear a scenario analysis of bond girls exposes their performance of femininity as an active challenge to sexist and racist ideologies rather than as passive victims of patriarchal imperial master's inscribed in their clothes are multiple patterns of disruption to the political foundation of bonds world. Wow Mad writer respect Monica that those who sentences pat quite the punch. But I'm hoping that you might. I establish some of the mainstream expectations of women. During Fleming's era in terms of femininity. So that that as we move on we can establish how this archetype of the bond girl really kind of stands in contrast of course so after the war women We Are we understand. Went back to SORTA fulfill they more traditional feminine roles that they had been performing before for the Second World War so there's different cycles during the twentieth century both worlds shaking up the gender roles that had. I've been in place before the war so after the nineteen forties in the nineteen fifties wage in regard. Thank you as a conservative day. Kids is they were women. Well go back to the kitchen. Go back to being homemakers family. Mothers wives Supporting their husbands in their missions. They rolled their professional careers and they're therefore even fashion. Of course you know that my book a is framed by the work of fashion as passionately. Scores Passion reflects this return to a more conservative traditional health.

"And so that's the big reason. And it's, you know, from a. From a business perspective, this project made no sense. I, I don't. I don't track my time, but I can tell you a lot of time when into this, but I know we talked about the relay membership, but I run. I run off. I fell pixels as well and like that income like really made this possible. Because if that is the bulk of the income from the site now is that membership and if that wasn't there, I cannot justified this, but I feel like I could because it had that that revenue. And I think I've over the years. I mean, this is going to be ten years old next month. I think over the years I have built five twelve into a brand of like if you wanna know about this stuff, this is where you go. And this, I think this is like a huge step in that direction. How how do you do something like this? Because I know you have a bunch of all of old computers around, right, which I'm sure confront some if not all of these. Versions, but then like how do you even on some of the older ones, get the screen shots off the machines. So so Iran listen, the blog post Iran, all of these OS is on actual hardware. None of this was like virtual machines. Would you can do you do that wouldn't have been easy to virtual machines? It it. It would have been would have been easier my back and moving towers around, but. If you have the hardware it is simpler to to run it directly, kind of kind of feels like you're an hipster. Like it's not all take if it didn't run on the actual hardware. This is a home grown aqua screen shot. Yeah, this is an autism screen. Shout library. This is real femme to tables, green shine. You know, it is their handcrafted. So locally grown, they're all on actual hardware. And so I started with the actually the beta added last, but the the public beta through like ten five ran on a couple of different g. four towers that have like with display. So I had a by four by three screen because of original versions of MAC OS running wide screen. They're only ran a four by three, so had to find a display and make the make the images. And then I moved from that to a MAC mini and then to a couple of different retina macbook pros. So like one thing I wanna do over and I just couldn't find a machine. I could not find a retina amac pro that I felt like I could justify the expense on to run lion the the retina machine. I borrowed from a friend who taught listening, so thank you, Ian Fleming bar your computer for like several weeks was. Ran mountain line that didn't rely on. And so I'd like to remake line at some point Bosnia's on actual hardware and using the grab application, which is part of of MAC, OS ten to make make the screen shots thing about to get better right in Mojave. Yeah, Mojave like really expands what grab can do, you know, like markup and stuff, which is really great. You'll notice if you look through these the first couple versions, the full screens for almost everything because grab now you can screen just a window and that was not possible in the early days. And a lot of the early images have like full screen or they're mainly crop depending on what they are, but eventually grab. Got good enough where you could just select a single window, which is what I wanted to. You know what kills me and like some, especially some of the Elliott ones where the menu Bah is rounded, but Shaw goes further and the square. But the menu bars rounded at the edges kills me look. Not a good luck, but. Yes, I used grab all of these machines. I had just on my local network, and so I could copy the screen shots off just from across the network using foul sharing. So that was actually pretty straightforward that what even on the older stuff plug it in and turn file sharing on and you're all set. So generally how would have it would have the the test bench like the test machine on a desk, and I had my laptop, so I had to have a long apple note of every screen shot that I needed in order..
