Monday 27 January 2003 at 8.30 pm
Ian Hislop at the supposed burial site of the dragon slayed by St. George

St George
The Queen's Golden Jubilee and the exploits of the England football team in the World Cup were good news for St. George's flag sellers. Yet what do we really know of the man himself?

Ian Hislop finds himself chasing after dragons, crusaders and a very large joint of roast beef.
