Another one from our week in the New Forest. Wandering around the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu we were a little taken aback to be stopped midway through the Bond exhibition by a chap with a radio and a tabard bearing the legend ‘SECURITY’. Wondering if we’d stumbled across a deranged gang of scrap metal thieves caught in the act I was pleasantly surprised to see Miss Moneypenny (Samantha Bond) having a coffee break between takes for an interview that was being conducted. I made like a pap, and rattled a couple of shots off just for posterities sake but unfortunately have no idea when we can expect to see this on the Telly, or whether it was a promotional Beaulieu video or a documentary.
As an aside, we later saw her driving around in a Lime Green Jag, complete with rockets in the grille, while a Camera car tried to keep up. I’m pretty sure I got a couple of decent shots of this somewhere as well, mostly with Mrs Dave and the kids in, who thought it was hilarious photo-bombing the shot at every opportunity.
