Dear Lisa, dear Philip,

at the moment both Rouquier films are not available via or as far as I see.

But Doriane Films in Paris (the catalogue is very promising!) offers both titles on their
website (DVD/PAL, engl. subtitles. Region code 2 as I suppose)

Here is the original publisher's website "Les documents
cinématographiques": (mail order is offered for both
titles in DVD and VHS)

You might also try to get them on VHS/SECAM by this small mailorder shop
in Paris: (see the link "documentaire").
Farrebique is in black and white. So it runs on all VHS multistandard
machines with PAL standard, too. Biquefarre is in colour. You need a
video machine with SECAM standard. A machine with PAL standard will show
SECAM videos in black and white.

With kind regards
