Check eBay for used copies too, maybe?

But I was looking at some of the titles and thinking, I’d really like to have DVD copies of them.  So I went looking on Netflix, and on Amazon, and some of them apparently just never made it to DVD (also, some of my tapes are bootlegs of stuff that never made it to this side of the pond).  Nothing on streaming, either, so far as I can tell.  Some of it’s just pretty obscure.
