It's not recent, and not youtube, but I found this Micro User show interesting. It isn't very informative, but its more a snapshot of 1985. My goodness - weren't people skinny then!
I'm working on http://bbcmicro.co.uk

Right at the end of that video (about 13:20) you can see John Huddleston, of P.R.E.S. Ltd., in the background with his trademark white shirt and black beard. Shame the video didn't go round all the stands. Noticed a young (goodness weren't we all?) Chris Evans and, of course all the Micro User team . . . I'd have been there on the P.R.E.S./ACP stand.

The Lass O' Gowrie looks familiar in that video. I wonder why? :- ;)

-B-'s avatar (Metal Mickey) just made me say to my wife "Wow... Metal Mickey. I haven't seen that since I was little, I wonder if it was spectacularly crap?"

Anyway, remarkable video indeed (beeb-era, certainly misc):

Reverse emulating the NES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar9WRwCiSr0

Very reminiscent of Pi-CoPro but for the NES - a remarkable achievement!

I made a video about my BBC BASIC port of One Room. The video is "remarkable" only in its badness:

It's the game that's bad, though only for the lack of RAM. And full of bugs? I'm glad the type-in phase of software retail is long dead and buried, especially where normal typists were required to run off those listings.

Intriguing to watch for tips and stuff these days, however.
