Where did football come from? Was it really invented in China or is the truth a little closer to home?

Why was knife crime such a problem for football hundreds of years ago? And what’s the real truth behind the history of the women’s game?

Public historian Greg Jenner joins comedian Tom Parry and historian Prof Jean Williams to teach you the true history of the beautiful game. It’s history for people who don’t like history!

Produced by Dan Morelle
Scripted by Greg Jenner
Researched by Emma Nagouse, assisted by Eszter Szabo and Evie Randall

A Muddy Knees Media production for BBC Radio 4
