   NB: This is not a word for word transcript1

  Alice: Hello, I'm Alice.
  Rob: And I'm Rob.
  Alice: And this is 6 Minute English! I have to say Rob, you’re looking very smart and
  sophisticated in your dinner jacket and bow tie.
  Rob: Oh, thanks, Alice. I’m trying to get in to character as James Bond because
  that's who we're talking about today.
  Alice: Ah, James Bond, probably one of the most famous fictional2 spies.
  Rob: Yes, British agent 007 was the smooth spy and hero of the novels by Ian
  Fleming.
  Alice: Well, even though Ian Fleming died in 1964, a new Bond book has just been
  published. But before I tell you more about it, Rob, here’s our question today.
  Do you know the title of the first-ever James Bond story that Ian Fleming
  wrote? Was it:
  a) Diamonds Are Forever
  b) From Russia With Love
  c) Casino Royale
  Rob: Hmm… they all sound like old titles, but I’ll have a guess at Casino Royale.
  Alice: OK, well, as usual, I'll tell you the correct answer at the end of the programme.
  Now let's talk about this new James Bond novel. It's called 'Carte Blanche'.
  Rob: 'Carte Blanche'. This is the first story about James Bond that's not written by
  Ian Fleming.
  Alice: That's right. It has been written by American author, Jeffery Deaver. He
  normally writes crime novels, but of course he’s a big fan of Ian Fleming and
  started reading his books when he was eight years old.
  Rob: Wow! That's quite young to be reading something that’s more suitable for
  adults!
  Alice: It is. Let's hear what he has to say about his parents encouraging him to read.
  Insert 1:
  Well, my parents had an odd rule in the household: my sister and I could read any book
  we could get our hands on - books were good. There were some movies that we were not
  allowed to see, so I picked up the James Bond books and was captivated with them. So
  Fleming was always part of my life as a reader and when I started writing, which was
  only a few years later, I modelled my books after his writing.
  Alice: That was Jeffrey Deaver who said he was captivated by the James Bond
  books.
  Rob: Captivated, so he was hooked on reading about him, especially as he wasn't
  allowed to watch any films – or movies.
  Alice: And when he started writing he modelled - copied the style of - the books on
  the writing of Ian Fleming.
  Rob: So it seems like he’s a good choice for someone to write the next Bond book.
  And it must have been a huge honour for him.
  Alice: A huge honour. He got the news by text message but, as he says, he didn't take
  long to say yes.
  Insert 2:
  I remember I was driving down the motorway3 and my phone buzzed with a text message.
  And of course I pulled over and I looked at it, and I debated 7, 8 seconds and answered
  that yes I would. The thrill was unsurpassed - I just can’t describe it.
  Rob: So he got a text message when he was driving. He pulled over and debated it
  with himself for 7 or 8 seconds. So he discussed it with himself!
  Alice: Yeah, and then he said yes! He said the thrill – the excitement – was
  unsurpassed; it couldn't be any better!
  Rob: I'm sure. But Alice, I know the world of James Bond is constantly being
  reinvented and updated, so how different is this new book from the old ones?
  Alice: Well, as you know, one of the best things about the Bond stories are the
  gadgets5. And as this is the first book to be set in the 21st Century there are some
  very up-to-date ones, including an app to help eavesdrop6 on people.
  Rob: An app – or application – used on a smart phone. That sounds great. Anything
  else?
  Alice: Yes. There is a gadget4 for iris7 recognition. It can check who you are by
  looking at your eyes!
  Insert 3:
  Spies have always been on the cutting edge of technology and Bond is always outthinking
  the bad guys - he has to have his gadgets. The trick of if you have to give a
  message to an agent on the street, and yet you know you’re being listened to or observed
  - you tie your shoelaces in a slightly different pattern and that will convey the message. I
  love little things like that.
  Alice: So Jeffrey says that Bond is always out-thinking the bad guys.
  Rob: So he means he’s trying to think beyond what the villains8 are thinking?
  Alice: I think so! That's why he said spies are always on the cutting edge of
  technology. They need them to catch the bad guys.
  Rob: Well, there aren't many Bond villians I would like to meet anyway, but they are
  very good to watch in the Bond films.
  Alice: They are, and of course the Bond film franchise9 is hugely successful. I wonder
  if this new book, Carte Blanche, will ever become a film? Anyway Rob, let's
  see if you got the correct answer to the question I gave you earlier.
  Rob: Ah, yes. You asked me what was Ian Fleming's first-ever James Bond book.
  And I said Casino Royale.
  Alice: And you were right.
  Rob: Ah!
  Alice: Casino Royale, first published in 1953. Well done! And before we go, let’s hear
  some of the words and phrases that we’ve used in today’s programme.
  Rob: sophisticated
  fictional
  novels
  captivated
  modelled
  debated
  unsurpassed
  eavesdrop
  iris recognition
  out-thinking
  cutting edge
  franchise
  Alice: Thanks, Rob. Well, we hope you’ve had fun with us today on 6 Minute English
  - and that you’ll join us again next time.
  Both: Bye.
