British Pathé random video viewer

British Pathé recently released 90,000 videos on to YouTube (though I could only find 82058 of them) - I wanted to make some kind of mashup art with it, but was not creative enough to think of anything interesting. So, instead I present: Random video player! Randomly (and pretty-much-endlessly) play through the collection, marveling at the wonders of the not-so distant past.

If you want to play with the code, check out the repo... it's an ES6 React app, that uses RxJS to create and consume a stream of video ids based on button clicks & pop state events.
