Another rattle speculation thread!

I'm hoping someone with a keen ear for diagnosing rattles can help with this one.

It's a little hard to hear on the video but there's a good long rattle approximately 50 seconds in and another just before the end. The video doesn't really convey how metallic this rattle is but that's the best way I can describe it.

It only occurs with a minimal amount of throttle input and at very low rpm in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears (not sure about 5th and 6th). In fact, it's at it's worst (most frequent and noisey) when letting the car pull itself along in 2nd with no throttle input whatsoever - as shown in the video.

Anybody who cares to speculate on what this could be, I'd be grateful for your input.
