My Mum had a gas fire which you had to hold the dial down for about 20-30 seconds before you could let go. I think it was a safety device to stop children lighting the fire.
sounds like its not getting enough gas through for whatever reason, but i would like to think a Corgi plumber would have checked this possibility.
Your pilot light is not strong enough. When the main burner lights, its dragging it away from the thermocouple causing the fire to go out. Get your plumber to strip the pilot light down and give the injector a good clean.
