This year, there’s been a new push for independence in Catalonia where the regional government has called a referendum. Madrid has once again – and in the strongest terms possible – declared that any such vote would be illegal, however. So where does Catalonia go from here?

A programme presented by Catherine Nicholson
Produced by Isabelle Romero and Laura Burloux
