reverse chronological video playlist

I clicked through to a video page on Talking Points Memo. The video autostarted. It lasted about a minute. When it was over, the page automatically flipped to another video page which behaved the same way. The second video was the previous posting. After it was over, the page reloaded to the page of the prior video. Etc.

So it’s a playlist composed of cooperating video pages, where each one does the same thing to keep the sequence going. And the playlist is in reverse chronological order, with each track a news clip.

It felt pretty compelling in its own way, but also gave me a little whiplash as the browser lurched from one page to the next.
