You can get Kodak Chromogenic B&W film for APS cameras.  Even Tesco used to
sell it and you should still be able to buy it in a photo dealership.

Subject: [Leica] B&W - hope for the future?

In a week of depression about Ilford, I just thought I would share this with

In the course of this weekend both my kids asked me for B&W film for their 
cameras; both use P&S, not Leicas (well they are only about ten!). When I
my daughter she said it produced "different" images. She was very upset when
said she could get B&W for Adv***** cameras. (That is right isn't it?)

My son was with me at Goodwoood (more of that later) shooting roll after
of, as he calls them "action shots", of GT40s, Lolas and the like. When he
out of film he asked me what I had left. On being told that I only had one
of B&W film on me, he said "I'd like to try that". Needless to say he shot
the whole roll in probably unsuitable conditions. He wanted the images. A
grin was on his face as yet another roll rewound itself.

The film: why, FP4+ - of course.
