Barcelona Nights

Richard Coles discusses the Catalunya region of Spain with writers and artists.

The Catalan language was once banned from schools and the media under Franco but is now once again at the heart of the region's life.

How do the maritime and industrial history of the region, its customs and often violent political past help to illustrate what sets the Catalans apart from the rest of Spain?
