With Euro 2016 and The Olympics just around the corner, we’ll be seeing a lot of sportspeople fudge the words to their national anthems. Alex Marshall travelled the world to learn the astonishing stories of these iconic songs, exploring their meaning today and showing how they’ve been rolled up with some of history’s most important events, from the French Revolution to the end of apartheid. Part-travelogue, part-cultural history, it’s a fascinating look at anthems and the composers behind them.Buy tickets
