Dinner in the Iguanadon

From the Radio 4 website:

"On New Year's Eve 1854, 21 leading scientists sat down to a sumptuous seven course banquet - served in the plastercast mould of a prehistoric beast! They were there to celebrate the creation of 33 life-size dinosaurs in the new Crystal Palace Park - a place where those same monsters still roam today."

Its on Wednesday 11 January 2006 14:15-15:00 (Radio 4)
