Over the course of production, the Catalunya Barcelona team interviewed more than 50 people. That amounted to nearly 100 hours of content. As the final release amounts to 10, 1-hour episodes, much valuable, entertaining and fascinating material was, regrettably, left on the cutting-room floor. As this was anticipated from the start, we’ve been posting numerous trailers, teasers, outtakes, and interview segments across social networks like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram since the project got underway. They’re all consolidated here, and are available to watch right now. While most interviews are conducted in Catalan, subtitles are available for all in English, and most in Spanish, as well as the native Catalan.
