Amazon Prime Video (viewing included with Prime subscription) is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film series with two original programs. The first is The Sound of 007: Documentary (2022, 88 minutes) from Prime Video: "Mat Whitecross’s new documentary, "The Sound of 007" reveals the history of the Bond music, from the genesis of 1962’s "Dr. No" with its iconic theme, through to Billie Eilish’s Academy Award®-winning song for 2021’s "No Time To Die." Many great clips from all of the movies, lots of interviews, behind-the-scenes with composers, and vintage performances. Find out that the lyrics for "Diamonds Are Forever" are really quite cheeky! Focus is mainly on the iconic title songs, the songwriters, and the artists chosen to sing them. As a John Barry fan, this documentary has many choice selections from his vintage interviews. The documentary is in UHD.

The second program is a live recording of the October 4, 2022 concert of Bond music, The Sound of 007: Live From The Royal Albert Hall (2022, 59 minutes), emceed by Dame Judi Dench. Lulu sings "The Man With The Golden Gun". The Royal Albert Hall site's description of the concert:


Celebrate 60 years of the James Bond film franchise with a charity concert that will showcase the iconic music of Bond, headlined by the legendary Dame Shirley Bassey.​
Curated by five-time Bond composer David Arnold and produced by EON Productions, the concert will feature Bond soundtrack artists including Garbage, as well as special guests including Celeste, putting their own interpretation on classic theme songs, backed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Dodd.​
The date marks the anniversary of the world premiere of the first 007 film, Dr. No held on 5 October 1962.​

I highly recommend both programs. For those interested, there's also a curated playlist of Bond music called [RE] DISCOVER on Amazon Music.

I very much enjoyed the concert. Shirley Bassey’s contribution was great and the standing ovation was really quite touching. Hitting those high notes at age 85 gives hope to us all.
