|Douglas Adams travelled to the remote island of Komodo in search of dragons, equipped only with a zoologist, a BBC producer and a dead goat. From May 5th to May 9th 1997 he read his account of what happened on BBC Radio 4. Here you can find the text of his readings and a selection of the pictures taken during the expedition.|

The music used on the broadcast is a track called RED LADY TOO from the 1968 album 'Wonderwall Music by George Harrison'. It's on the Apple label (no relation...) UK: SAPCOR 1; CDP 7 98706 2. It's an obscure album (though I think it's safe to assume that Noel Gallagher has heard of it), and was the soundtrack to a movie directed by Joe Massot. For more info on the CD, see Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
