History winner:

Our May Bank Holiday quiz winners was Felicity Currie — who knew that it was dragons.

They linked Oliver Postgate's children's programmes 'The Clangers' (Soup Dragon) and 'Ivor the Engine' (Idris — who liked to warm himself in the engine), the Patron Saint of England (killed one), a 1963 pop hit for Peter, Paul & Mary (Puff the Magic Dragon), the literary debut of serial killer Hannibal Lecter (Red Dragon) and a famous test piece written by Philip Sparke to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Cory Band (Year of the Dragon).
