    That "Premium Bond" comment above reminded me of that PG Tips advert from the 1970s or 1980s where they did a James Bond spoof with the chimps, and one of them said (voiced by Michael Jayston of course) "the name's Bond - Brooke Bond".

    I wonder whether it was played during ad breaks of James Bond films? The irony is that I am certain that Jayston himself had played Bond himself at least once, obviously not in the films but in some other representation of that character.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I think Michael Jayston played 007 in a BBC radio adaption of one of the novels.

    Yes, that's right. The fact that he wasn't an actor who played Bond in the Connery or Moore sense at least made me think of whether he did play Bond after all, or whether I was imagining things.

    Yes he did, but he did not play saxophone on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street - that was someone else of course.

    He also played secret agent Quiller in the series of that name in 1975 for the BBC.

    He was also Peter Guillam in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but was unavailable for Smiley's People.
