Can a book of poetry for boys which inspired young men at the beginning of the 20th century work its magic on a new generation? Comedian Miles Jupp revisits his old prep school with a book of Muscular Lines to see if the stirring verse about battles, exploration and moral values is relevant today. Some of today's heroes and explorers reveal the poems that keep them going when times get tough.
