| Pinewood
Jonathan Ross returns to the BBC for this 80th birthday celebration of Pinewood studios, regarded as Britain's answer to Hollywood.

Started by J Arthur Rank, a methodist flour magnate it is 90 acres of sound stages in the Buckingham countryside. Classic films such as The Red Shoes were filmed here, the Bond series and Carry on. In fact we learnt that it was comedies that kept Pinewood going as they were profitable and lower budget.

Ross recreated some famous scenes such as Bond stunts, he even managed to glean some exclusives for the upcoming SPECTRE as well as speaking to former Pinewood stars such as Joan Collins and Barbara Windsor.

An interesting look at the history of a stalwart of the British film industry. Maybe it concentrated too much on the Bond films.
