James Bond heads to the Bahamas, enduring a lot of hardship and some seriously bad weather on route to recover two stolen nuclear warheads. He tracks them down to a stolen bomber plane, enduring more hardships and another rocky trip in bad weather along the way. Be warned, this film is realistic - so much so that even the critics threw up on watching it - it's Chunderball.

In another exciting Bond film, Bond heads off to infiltrate a top cookery school which is clearly a front for a millionaire megalomaniac whose aim is to nuke the world then rule it. A tense, exciting film that leads to a classic cook-off - Live and Let Dine.

In the sequel to this, Bond swops his fast-paced life of action, violence and beautiful women for the International Bun Baking Contest, which he soon discovers is rigged to favour the glamorous Miss Simnell Caique, a suspiciously good cook, who is also the employee of a millionaire megalomaniac. Yes - it's The Man With The Golden Bun.
