In case you missed it there's 9 minutes on MSL (actual hardware visible) + 5 minutes with Dr Elachi on "This week in Space" there: http://www.spaceflightnow.com/
14 minutes out of 23 regarding Unmanned, not bad.

Jen Blank presented information about ChemCam at Seti Institute two months ago. The video is here:

I can't remember if she addressed the questions posed in this thread, but I do remember the talk being informative.
