    Not sure if it's worth it for you with shipping to the UK, but the "Aristacolor" house brand from Freestyle is pretty cheap, and comes in 100 ISO, which can be hard to find sometimes. I'm fairly certain it's Ferrania. I got a roll of the 100 ISO with my last order, haven't shot it yet, though.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    When I was in Lidl around December time there was short-dated (03/2008, this month) double-packs of 36 exp. Fujicolor Z200 for 49p - under 25p a roll! I grabbed half a dozen. It's actually not too bad. Sadly when I returned next time they had all gone. I wish I had bought more. Maybe other Lidl stores may have some hanging around?

    right, so far i've dug out a couple of rolls of old dixons film, probably the same emulsion as is in the jessops, it's made in the EU, it's ASA 200, so we'll see how it goes.

    also, i'll pop down to aldi and get a couple of rolls of that Kodak stuff, and see how i fare whilst i'm away.

    thanks.

    (Deduced from them stating to have a new colour emulsion-making facility installled.)

    It's interesting to see how little diversity there is in terms of manufacture of colour films, from that, i can work out that all of the colour film I own is produced in Ferrina. If there's so little diversity, then why can't E-6 be catered for more easily by one of the plants at least?

    Yes, short or out dated film usually on sale in place to get it moving off the shelves and out the door. These can be great bargains. Is Jessops a camera/photo specialty store, or a pharmacy chain or department store or what? I live in the US, but I was just curious about that as I see it mentioned in here off and on. BTW, what is a quid? Just wondering. Thanks for the help.

    By the way, as the error goes on:
    Community and company are called Ferrania.

    Yes, Jessops is (some would say "was" given they are now 99.9% digital) a large chain of photo stores with shop(s) in most town's high street.

    A quid = one pound sterling (also see: fiver, tenner, pony, monkey etc ).
