I have no idea how you are getting to that page, but if you go to http://wargamingamerica.com/OTT and click on 'start watching' it takes you to the most recent. Or, if you go to http://wargamingamerica.com/OTT/ep1/ , the morning session, that's another way of getting to the most recent.

Aha, thank you.  I was thrown because the URL says "EP1," but it is indeed part six.

I maintain that the website is difficult to navigate.


I have a talent for getting into places where I should not be.

Chief, I'm curious, why are you not uploading this onto Youtube? I think putting it onto Youtube would be a much better method of trying to get people to actually see this. Get Treadheads to do a shoutout to redirect people to watch this.

What is in this video is just the tip of the iceberg and I would love to see Think Tank go into the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th year, what we need is just the right amount of exposure, which I don't think it's being given.

Good question. I'm not in charge of content release (I'm a tanker, not a marketer!), though it was my first thought. Honestly, I'd not be surprised if we ended up putting it on Youtube eventually but I have faith in my colleagues across the hall.

Punisher, that depends probably on a meeting I have tomorrow. The Euro lads haven't supported this at all, and they've been too busy with Gamescom until now for me to grab a hold of. If they can't support the release of part 2 this weekend, it will be next weekend.

Well, Chief...don't you have access to your own Youtube account? If you have the release in parts, you might as well just upload it yourself, though I wouldn't mind if you sat down in front of a microphone and droned on for a little bit with each section like you get for commentaries for movies in DVDs.

It's not a technical thing, it's a policy/process thing.

I'm noticing a couple minutes of black, empty screen on the second video. Can you shed some light on what's going on there? Is that a video issue or is it on my end?

I downloaded the whole thing, so if I didn't watch each segment I wouldn't be "supporting" this event?

I hope i made myself understood, since English is not my mother language.

Both are tracked. Just one with more fidelity than the other.

When i got to around the 2 1/2 hour mark it would start to black out for maybe 30 seconds then it would be fine for another 10-20 minutes or so and go black again. It blacked out around four times.

I've just finished watching the afternoon session after downloading it as soon as I could. Both sessions were great, and it's awesome to learn, confirm and debunk a lot of stuff from guys who have spent decades on research.
As Razven said, you should really put some pressure to upload the entire thing to Youtube. That would give you a huge amount of views.
Personally I'd love to see a 2013 edition, and learn even more stuff.

As a suggestion (I actually don't know how possible/viable this would be, requiring authorization from the Museum itself), you could have filmed some tour for specific tanks. Let's say, you show an M4, mention some of it's specs, some trivia, etc, and then show you (or some of the historians) going inside and showing it as well. Maybe even how the process of loading the shell and aiming would have gone (not saying to actually operate it, mind you).

First episode tentatively schedule for 5th September.

T is an experimental (Test) designation. "M" is an "in service" model designation.

I too am having issues with the screen going black.  The biggest lacuna is at the 1:57:55 mark.
