‘Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond’
A beautiful woman scuba-diving in Goldeneye, Jamaica; a dangerous looking race down a mountain in Austria; and a very specific drink order at a London bar. Is it Bond, James Bond? No, this slick and sexy four-part series follows Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming (Dominic Cooper) and his adventures as a playboy turned intelligence officer in 1938 London. 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, on BBC America (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
