Barcelona with Robert Hughes In this critical, tough and often idiosyncratic documentary,
Robert Hughes , art critic and cultural historian, explores the capital city of Catalonia.
Currently in the news as a city of sport, Barcelona has a long history of distinguished contribution to art, music and architecture.
Hughes visits the anarchic celebrations that accompany the annual celebration of the festival of the Merce; goes to designer Javier Mariscal 's architecturally outrageous nightclub, the Torre d'Avila; watches the lurid display of the transsexuals who openly ply their trade in the shadow of the football stadium; and samples the activity that pulses 24 hours a day in the Ramblas. And in the majestic modernist setting of Domenich Montener 's Palau de Musica he talks to Montserrat Caballe about her love of the city. Director Gerry Troyna Editor Andrew Snell
