Story of the Scene: You Only Live Twice (1967)

One of the highlights of the fifth film in the James Bond series was the Little Nellie autogyro aircraft. After Q comes over from England to deliver it, Sean Connery takes the opportunity to pilot it to a remote area of Japan on a reconnaissance mission to discover the hidden lair of the SPECTRE organisation. However the extraordinary aerial shots by legendary cameraman John Jordan came at a heavy price, and what happened above the mountains of Miyazaki was to contribute to his early death

Tom Sutcliffe: Why respect what you have paid for?

Deference has had it pretty rough for the last 100 years – and even rougher in the last 20. A quality that was already finding it difficult to make a case for itself in an age of universal suffrage and egalitarianism found itself undermined even further by the notion that we should instinctively think of ourselves as customers rather than citizens. This took some getting used to, but in some areas it turned out to be a blessing. Instead of approaching a telephone supplier or an energy provider as a humble supplicant we could start to think of ourselves as the paymasters, people who were owed deference rather than expected to show it.
