Double-click on any sequence that's in the Project panel.

It appears that the AVCHD project settings don't allow any tracks in a time line. I can play my video in the source monitor (which it what happens when I double click it from the project panel) but there is apparently no way to get a track to show up in the time line. Even from the "sequence" menu the "add" and "delete tracks" menu items are desensitized. If I use an HDV project template I can drag my AVCHD video into the timeline. So that begs the question why offer the AVCHD templates if they really can't be used?
Eddie thanks for the link to the tutorials...very helpful!
I said to double-click a sequence, not a video clip.
Sorry Jeff, I didn't know what a sequence was. I'm still not sure actually, but I looked up how to create one from the help menu. And voila there appeared video and audio tracks in the time line.
Obviously I'm new to Premiere.

Help is great - but sometimes it confuses new users because they don't know the correct terminology, or (even worse) Premiere's name for features with which they are familiar in other editing programs.
I'm glad you found what you needed in the Help files.
