The photography & narration are interesting, informative, well-paced &, simply, great.

I poked around a lot & finally found a few of the discs on eBay & Amazon. Then I discovered that Rogue Creamery sells the entire series here:

http://www.roguecreamery.com/store/pr...

& then by opening the 'available options' drop box all 5 discs become available. Note that their shipping charges are based on the weight ratio of cheese/dollar, but a phone call or email to them will drop shipping back to a realistic level.

Usual caveats, we've nothing to gain by their sales of cheese or DVDs, &c &c &c (but they make a mean smoked blue...).

Cheers!
