For those who do not live in the UK, each week on the BBC we have a TV programme called 'Dragon's Den', which features entrepreneurs who pitch their inventions to the multi-millionaire 'dragons'.
(Link provided below for those who are unfamiliar with the series).

Is it just me - or is the background music employed during the 'pitches' a variation of Queen's 'Dragon Attack'?

Logically, it would work - as it would provide a subtle connection between Queen and the entrepreneurial dragons - or am I just tilting at winmills?

If I am correct, could this theme music be lifted and remixed into a 'Dragon - Dragon Attack 12" remix?

Good point JSS! I've never noticed a similarity to Dragon Attack before, but I'll be listening out for it now.

What I do hate are those little he-hoo's that happen in the background, usually after they;ve finished making their pitch and Evan Davies states the bloody obvious. Sounds like its lifted from I'm Going Slightly Mad :-)

Can't listen to it. Only available in the UK.

We've got the same programme in Holland. I quite like the concept. At least it's not commercialized or anything.
