You might try they seemed to have quite the Humphrey Jennings collection last time I checked. I also got quite a few early WWII docs there earlier this spring.

Does anyone know of a North American distributor for WWII British
propaganda films?

The titles I am looking for were produced by the Crown Film Unit, formally
a division of the Post Office, (!) in the United Kingdom.

I have found out where I can purchase them in the UK, but would prefer a
North American distributor, and of course, one who can offer me PPR.

This is going to be a great course if I can get my hands on this stuff!

The titles are as follows:
The Heart of Britain (1941)
Listen to Britain (1942)
A Diary for Timothy (1956)
Fires were Started (1943)
Desert Victory (1942)
Target for Tonight (1941)
Coastal Command (1942)

Many Thanks in advance for ANY leads.
