The Band of the Scots Guard thumped out some of 007's greatest hits, the theme tunes that are often more memorable than the films themselves. These included Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger (both sung originally by Shirley Bassey), For Your Eyes Only (Sheena Easton), Live and Let Die (Wings) and You Know My Name, the song for the new Bond film, Casino Royale.

Today's event was organised by the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, the charity that is also the recipient of the money raised by Royal Film Performance Casino Royale of course - which takes place next Tuesday, the 14th November.

"We are turning Leicester Square into one vast multiplex cinema taking over all three cinemas in the Square The Odeon Leicester Square, The Odeon West End and the Empire," said a spokesperson for CTBF of the Royal Film Performance, which will be attended by the Queen.

Royal Film Performances go back a long way. Queen Victoria watched footage of her own Silver Jubilee in 1897, but she didn't live long enough to catch LondonNet's Casino Royale coverage, which you can find here
