Not really Beeb related but a fantastic reimagining of an 8-bit classic.

This one might be interesting to simoni if he hasn't already seen it: Catching up with Domesday, Andy Finney (Wuthering Bytes 2016). Much of the information in the talk can be found at the presenter's The BBC Domesday Project page.

Is that Chris Williams as in "our" Chris Williams of Drobe fame?

Yes. I always thought his level of sarcasm would be a perfect fit for The Register. He now lives in San Francisco and is their US editor - https://twitter.com/diodesign

However for added confusion, if you look at old ElReg articles (pre-2011ish) by Chris Williams, it is a different one!

It's still only got 117 views. A nice companion is the BBC's original broadcast about the Domesday whatnots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZBNbWq5DKQ

From 1985, Thames TV's Database program, showing off a Beeb running some extreme accessibility software (eye movement input device, £300), here
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=1m41s
and another Beeb hooked up to a £300 RH Electronics Image Processing System
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=15m50s
which is presumably the same device described here as a Video Digitiser:
https://www.beebmaster.co.uk/CheeseWedges/VideoDig.html
(Light pen also on display in this segment)

Another Beeb spotted in a later segment about Revs, demoed by race driver David Hunt, at the time sponsored by Acornsoft, here:
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=21m40s
Then a bit with Geoff Crammond talking about writing the simulation. And then a quick mention of Olivetti's takeover of Acorn.

Hat tip Alex Taylor on Google plus.

Neither recent nor on YouTube, but on Vimeo there's a small collection of 5 min films on Cambridge inventions, including
- the BBC Micro
- the ARM
- the Raspberry Pi
The first two are mainly interviews with Sophie Wilson, but somehow don't feel just like more of the same - worth a watch. The second is an interview with Eben Upton.

(Eben was also featured in a recent episode of The Life Scientific on Radio 4 - probably geo-locked to the UK.)

(Edit to add: Also on the Pi, I thought I'd look out some of the earliest mentions, before it was even released.
  • 2011 May 5, on the BBC tech blog, with David Braben and a prototype Pi (also here) - this is the one which went viral and jolted them into a deadline mode
  • 2011 Oct 26, Raspberry Pi presents the $25 PC at ARM TechCon 2011
  • 2011 Aug 27, Raspberry Pi - Quake 3 demo
  • 2011 Aug 28, Educating Programmers Summit - Eben Upton, Raspberry Pi Foundation
  • 2011 Nov 5, Raspberry Pi Tutorial 1 - An Introduction to Debian Linux
  • 2011 Nov 20, Raspberry Pi Tutorial 3 - Hello World, Geany and Python
  • 2011 Nov 21, SVc2UK 2011 - Jack Lang, Raspberry Pi (bad audio, very noisy!)
  • 2011 Dec 23, Raspberry Pi Beta Board Bring up
)

I'm not sure about recent or remarkable, but I was watching EEVBLOG this morning about how PC joysticks worked and noticed a few beeb mentions/overlays which suggest he may be a fan, at least of the electronics.

Not sure if self plugging is the done thing but as the use of the BBC Micro for this was partly inspired by the members of this forum....

Mr PSB (train fanatic and Train Sim expert) and I drive the Southern Belle to Brighton on my BBC Master. To complicate things, Mr PSB is on the other side of the country! A complex setup which include a cameraphone running Skype (all balanced on top of my Master) pointing at the capture screen resulted in this video!

Not so much 'remarkable' but more 'a bit sad'.

And the embed code eludes me #-o

It really isn't once you understand how the train works (Mr PSB does a good job explaining). You can do a run like we did non stop with the basic controls and its fairly straightforward. It's only the regulator, the cut off and the brake to worry about. Once you master that you then try stopping, more controls etc etc. The trickiest bits on the easiest runs are starting and stopping. I did a test run beforehand and crashed into Brighton station hence my hesitancy when we did the actual recording!

Not BBC Micro related strictly speaking but fascinating from a Southern Belle perspective. Mr PSB re-enacted the run we did on my BBC Master in modern Train Sim. So a similar steam loco on the modern track. Interesting to see the points they choose to model in the Hewson game including the ornate tunnel about 10 miles out of Brighton.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MamBFVRWeg

Of course if you use that line it will probably be a big yawn (although still interesting from the steam side). But I've never been on the line and was interested to see what bits had been modelled. And all the big stuff that would have been there in the 30's is there!

Ahem, it's an A310 :)

There's a companion piece on the actual BBC games over on the Chemistry channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cylNiU0mmHg
