Thanks folks, It does indeed look like there are many alternatives and all I have to do is get my head around it. I'm very familiar with Francesco's images which are stunning (but he could get wonderful images with a cardboard box and sticky back tape )and as noseoil has said he does wonders with Efke which Ian Grant suggested to me before we heard of Ilfords troubles.
Apologies for getting myself into rather a twist on this one. My major confession is that I am permanently bordering on clinical depression and shocks like we have had the last few days tend to take away my crutches.
Kind regards Tony
