I performed this reaction as an assignment after it was referenced in Ilya Prigogine's book "The End of Certainty" as an example of a chemical reaction that gained new properties when far from equilibrium. I used various recipes from Wolfgang Jahnke and Arthur T. Winfree's 1991 paper in the Journal of Chemical Education, "Recipes for Belousov-Zhabotinsky Reagents." The later half of the video is a time-lapse of a 34 min. reaction, showing it in about 3 min.
