I think Gerard can be forgiven. He's probably plenty busy again these days.

If I remember correctly, the original products were manufactured by Guilleminot up until around 1992. The name returned around 1995 when Bergger products appeared (Bergger = Boucher + Gerard) in the form of products manufactured by Forte and others. In any case, Bergger has quite a "legend" surrounding it - but even today nobody seems to know the whole story. Except Boucher and Gerard.
I believe I last used the ISO 100 film around late 1999 and it might have been outdated stock. In any case, it was given to me by an overseas friend and I did not purchase it from a retailer in the USA. The film was sent to be in the foil wrappers (no box) so there was no expiration date available.
FilmoTec certainly sounds like a logical source.
