Character designer Carlos Grangel chats to Gerard Escaich Folch about collaborating with top Hollywood directors, never working on sequels, and speaking Spanglish to Steven Spielberg.  

This week's Catalan phrase is 'tenir la paella pel mànec'. Literally 'to have the pan by the handle', it means to be in control, to run the show. 

Presented by Lorcan Doherty.
