Strange. I bought them a few weeks ago using fnac.com.
I checked the site again (www.fnac.com) and I am able to find them, so
I'm not sure why you cannot.
If you limit the search to dvd, then put in the title Farrebique, it
does come up.

Dear Lisa, dear Philip,
at the moment both Rouquier films are not available via fnac.com or
amazon.fr. as far as I see.
But Doriane Films in Paris (the catalogue is very promising!)
http://www.doriane-films.com/index.html 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
http://boutique.lesdocs.com/index.asp (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
http://www.k-films.com/index2.htm (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
Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin
