Javier, thanks for sharing those links!
I watched the one about "A day in the life of an interpreter" twice, and I think it's interesting because it shows interpreters at work, before and during an assignment.

The DG Interpretation at the European Commission, also known as SCIC, has a channel on YouTube: .
There are 9 videos at the moment. "Interpreting for Europe", in my opinion, is a must-see, because it is about the history of interpreting at the EU institutions. There is also a part in which the different types of interpreting are listed.

This is a video about the importance of using trained interpreters instead of untrained ones (e.g. family members who speak two languages and don't have any interpreter training).
