On October 17, Sir Roger Moore was flown by helicopter to Bletchley Park, the famed British mansion enshrined in history as the spy HQ where the German code was broken during WWII. Sir Roger's mission: to meet with press from around the world to promote the new release of Fox's Blu-ray editions of Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Die Another Day, For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die and Thunderball. Cinema Retro publishers Dave Worrall and Lee Pfeiffer were also hired by Fox to meet with the press and share their knowledge of Bond lore with international TV stations. Adding to the fun was the display of classic Aston Martins and other vehicles brought by Peter Nelson, owner of the Cars of the Stars Museum. The press sessions lasted for hours and featured appearances by some of real espionage heroes : the surviving code breakers.
