BCG Film

I received a free roll of BCG Film P400 recently from Greenwich Cameras. It came with an order of Foma 400 film. I had never heard of this film, but intend to try it.
Has anyone used it?

Jonathan, there don't seem to be any simple answers here. My understanding of Ravilious is that he was really concerned about the final print, not the negative. He wanted his prints to have the...
