A noisy tour led by BBC correspondents around the globe. In this edition, Anu Anand visits a street in Delhi devoted to car horns, and in the process finds out why the Indian capital is so loud. And Alex Marshall meets one of the musicians attempting to pen a new national anthem for Switzerland.

Also in the programme, Girish Gupta learns about the politics of calypso music in Guyana and Rachel McCormak returns to her old stomping grounds in Barcelona only to find a raging debate over Catalan independence. Plus a desert festival mixes the old and new in Abu Dhabi – and has Shahidha Bari wondering how long will the desert be deserted?
