Euronews shoot successful

A two-man television crew (Spanish journalist Julian from France and English cameraman Terry from Luxemburg) spent all day at our department to gather material for a documentary on research into Parkinson’s disease. It was very fascinating to have an inside look at the professional making of a documentary. Hours of material were gathered of the DiPAR team in a meeting, of an interview with Rutger Zietsma (Manus Neurodynamica, DiPAR coordinator), of an interview with Nico Leenders (UMCG, neurologist specialized in movement disorders), of data recording performed by Esther Smits (UMCG, PhD student) in a healthy subject and in a patient with Parkinson‘s disease, of an interview with the patient and finally, of an interview with me as coordinator of all DiPAR research taking place at the UMCG. I am looking forward to the final product, which will summarize all of this in 3 or 4 minutes! Check this website in a few weeks for a link to the documentary.
