"Live and Let Die" has been voted the greatest James Bond theme. Sir Paul McCartney's song, recorded with his band Wings, topped a poll of BBC Radio 5 Live and Radio 2 listeners.

The theme song from the 1973 film of the same name pulled in more than a quarter of the votes.

Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better" from The Spy Who Loved Me was runner-up, while Dame Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger" came third.

The poll was held to mark 50 years since 007 first appeared on cinema screens, with Sean Connery as Bond in Dr No.
