Licenced to take the piss - go get em, Rog!

The Archive's favorite James Bond, Roger Moore is to host the satirical news show, Have I Got News for You. The episode will be aired on November 23, and it will be the first time Moore has presented the programme.

Moore will be appearing alongside regular panelists Ian Hislop and Paul Merton and guest panelists Marcus Brigstocke and Rachel Johnson.The 85-year-old actor enjoyed the longest ever stint as James Bond in the film franchise which turned 50 this year. His first appearance as the British spy, originally created by Ian Fleming, was in the film Live and Let Die in 1973 when he was 45.

He reprised the role of 007 in six more films, finishing in 1985 with A View to a Kill. Moore was 58 when he retired from playing Bond. Before taking on the role, he had appeared as suave detective Simon Templar in TV series The Saint.
