Miss Marple and the creator of James Bond at a bird lecture in A Caribbean Mystery

(Fun background story: Fleming was indeed an avid bird-watcher, as is Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple. Fleming took the name for his superspy from an American ornithologist and Caribbean bird expert James Bond, who’d written the definitive field guide on the birds of the West Indies. “Casino Royale”, Fleming’s first Bond book, was written in Jamaica in 1952. Coincidentally, the name “James Bond" first appeared in the Agatha Christie story “The Rajah’s Emerald”, 27 years before Casino Royale was published. To top it off, the guy playing James Bond the ornithologist in this scene is Marple screenwriter Charlie Higson, who also writes the young James Bond books.)
