Radio Riel Theatre presents an adaptation of Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger.
Auric Goldfinger is obsessed with gold. James Bond is charged by the Bank of England and MI5 to discover what Goldfinger is actually doing with his vast hoards of gold. Is he somehow connected with SMERSH — the feared soviet spy-killing organisation? When 007 becomes an undercover member of Goldfinger’s team he soon learns that the madman’s plans are more grandiose than even ‘M’ could possibly have imagined. Amazingly, robbing Fort Knox is on the agenda — and mass murder…
Starring Toby Stephens as Bond, John Standing as M, Rosamund Pike as Pussy Galore and Ian McKellan as Goldfinger
