French banjitarist Maurice Soudre demonstrates and provides some history of the instrument. Sorry it's not available in English. The video is also interesting from a technical point of view. He plays some songs by the Reverend Gary Davis and he uses a thumb pick and only one fingerpick for a two-fingered kind of style. Most traditional banjoists use three picks (thumb, index, and middle). When I wear picks, I usually use four, (thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers). It's an interesting approach and seems to not be a disadvantage to Soudre. There's some great playing on the video.
