The Clash - Audio Ammunition

Evening all.Thought id start with a bit of advice. If any of you are in London or are planning to come to London before this Sunday Sept the 22nd get yourselves down to 75 Berwick Street(just off Oxford Street) to the Black Market Clash pop up shop/exhibition. Its feckin great. I went there today and to be able to see so many iconic pieces of clash ephemera is a chance not to be missed.(my 2 year old daughter slept through it!)I will post some photos if anyone cant make it down and would like to see any.
So when i got home in the email inbox was a link for this piece you see above. Id not heard of it before getting it but apparently its a new 5 part mini documentary(in its original form)featuring video interviews with all of the band,Joe strummer appearing courtesy of unused clips from The future is unwritten i think,and i believe the whole thing ties in with the exhibition and release of the box set etc etc.anyway this is the documentary but in a single podcasty mp3 kind of thing with all 5 parts joined together.so as you know im a bit of a technophobe so ive no idea how the sender(thanks to jimbo in antrim for the link!)was able to do this.ive just looked on youtube and just watched part 1 there.anyway each part is about a studio album and the whole thing lasts a little over 40 mins.does anyone know or have a link to a file where i can watch all 5 parts in one go?surely someone must be able to join all 5 parts together?If you can please get in touch via the comments.so please listen to this,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
