      Dear Emilia,

      Many thanks for making us aware of this glitch and helping us to improve our service. As Zurich.Minds (now World.Minds) has undergone a rebranding of late, its old links unfortunately no longer work. I've replaced the old link with a link to YouTube, which, I hope, will allow you to watch the full video. I will also repair the outdated links in our other Zurich.Minds summaries, which may suffer the same issue.

      If you encounter any other problems with our service, please let us know.
