Video's of the 2023 symposium

In Progress with video-editors notes – for technical information please email Olivier Jansen 

While we are building this videopage, please, if you want to refer to an episode, refer specific URL’s to this page ( ) instead of the temporarely youtube URL’s. We do change youtube URL’s because we will do corrections until we finish the build of this video-page and the video’s themselves. If you use the youtube URL now, your viewers will find probably a dead page instead of the film. So please use this page URL as a starting and referral point. When the editing is finished, we inform you if it is safe to use the youtube URL.
