Bond rooftop bike stunt in TV report

Skyfall motorbike stunt filmed in Istanbul

BEHIND the scenes footage of the new James Bond film Skyfall shows a stuntman dashing across the rooftops of Istanbul aboard a motorbike.

The shoot in Turkey has not been without drama, as a stuntman crashed a motorbike through the window of a 330-year-old jewellery shop in the city's 15th century Grand Bazaar, after swerving to avoid film extras.

Set for release in October this year, Skyfall will be the 23rd film in the Bond series and sees Daniel Craig return as 007.
