Contest to find new Swiss national anthem
More than 200 songwriters have entered a contest to compose a new national anthem for Switzerland.

Next summer, there will be a TV show to choose one of the three finalists.
Alex Marshall, who is writing a book about national anthems, explains the secrets of a good anthem with the BBC's Philippa Thomas.
