The comedian Frankie Boyle travels to Russia in order to see what is going on as the country prepares for the World Cup.

In the first of two episodes, Frankie makes several visits, including to a seaside town where the England team will be staying during the tournament, a town twinned with Glasgow which is known for football-related violence, and encounters some sabre-wielding Cossacks who will be policing the stadiums.

Frankie Goes to Russia is on BBC Two at 21.00.
