Newsround – described as the BBC’s “news magazine keeping young viewers up to date with the latest stories and events happening at home and abroad” – produced an article titled “Everything you need to know about St Andrew’s Day” on November 30th.
In a section sub-headed “Who was Saint Andrew?” the corporation’s younger audience was told that:
“We don’t actually know a lot about St Andrew.
It is believed that he was born between the years 5 AD and 10 AD in a place that’s now called Palestine, in the Middle East. […]
Andrew’s brother, Simon Peter, was also one of the disciples. They both lived in Galilee, where they were fishermen.”[emphasis added]
According to Christian tradition – including the Vatican – St Andrew was indeed born in the Galilee district, possibly in Bethsaida, and fished in the Sea of Galilee.
