The St George's Flag

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 28 October 2010

Comedian Richard Herring reclaims those things we have given a bad name to. This week he's reclaiming the English National Flag from any associations with far right extremists. Why does the man and woman on the street have no idea when St George's day is? Who is St George? Richard asks a vexillologist (flag expert) about how flags have come to symbolise nations.He also talks to anthropologist Kate Fox who has studied the behaviour of the English, about why the English are not natural flag waving patriots. The show was recorded in front of an audience.
