Inventing Bond: The Real Q

Well before Bond was lasering and limboing himself out of fictional situations, these were the questions faced by the British forces trying to repatriate prisoners of war during the Second World War. In this episode, we explore the solutions that they came up with.

Dallas is joined by Helen Fry, author of MI9: Escape and Evasion, to find out who the inventive 'Clutty' was, and how he managed to get men out of POW camps with the help of some playing cards and a monopoly board.

Edited by Tom Delargy, Produced by Freddy Chick and Sophie Gee, Senior Producer was Charlotte Long.
