There is something slightly different about London's Olympic medal ceremonies: the music. This year, the London Philharmonic recorded all 205 of the world's national anthems. Composer Philip Sheppard and sound engineer Jake Jackson were in charge of the effort. 

The Takeaway caught up with them recently, and they told us about some of the project's bigger challenges, as well as the complications involved in so many national anthems.
