European Court of Human Rights

To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Court of Human Rights has produced a 3-minute video-clip presenting the 15 main rights and freedoms in the Convention and its Protocols. 3 min. Audio is just music, the rights  are presented in writing with images - very youth-oriented.
The ECHR site also has webcasts of its hearings. You can hear, for example, Mosley v. United Kingdom - 1h30, no transcript, but there are press releases with a presentation of the case which can be read before listening. The Mosley case press release is here.
