How do I get the pages for the Harvard Justice course to load?

Why are the lecture pages for the Harvard's Justice course loading sometimes...and how do I get the pages that aren't loading to load?

Example: Lecture 6 loads--and when I hit the 'next lecture' button, Lecture 7 does NOT load, page is all white. However, when I go back to the main page and choose Lecture 7, it does load. Which would be annoying but fine, except that this does not work for all pages--Lectures 10 and 11, for example, don't load at all--no errors, but pages are all white.

I'm using Firefox, tried turning off tracking protection, and I tried Safari also, no change.

Best answer: I tried your link to Lecture 10, and I got an "HTTP Error 500" message. Try using the Wayback Machine to view archived copies. It works for me, though it can be slow to load.

Best answer: Try adding a slash to the end of the URL. So instead of
Make it
That works for at least one page.

Other than that, it looks like pages have just been changed or moved or renamed a little and the corresponding links haven't been updated to match. The best solution would be to contact the web page maintainers and see if they can fix it.

Other than that, you might be able to find archived pages or links, for example at or in the google cache.

You can find all of the videos on youtube via these playlists: Playlist 1 - Playlist 2. You can also find various lectures by searching youtube for "harvard justice sandel" and similar.

That doesn't bring you the rest of the materials on the page, though!

(On preview, looks like you can get the pages via the Wayback Machine/ as alex1965 says, and the videos via youtube as I linked above.)

Response by poster: Thank you both! I found the lectures as podcast also, which is handy, but Wayback machine for the supplemental material win.
