Well, It`s good that its hosted by Mr Moore. But what else? No behind the scenes, nothing about the making, nothing about the actors. I could go on. The story is thin; You get to follow Mr Moore in different situations which is fit in to a Bond sequence. For example Moore walks into a train looking for a train compartment. Looking into those you get to see scenes cut from different Bond films containing scenes from train compartments, and so it goes on. it does not add anything new. So therefore I cannot recommend it.
