they can be bought either singly or as a 3DVD boxed set. I got mine at the RAF museun Hendon, but you could probably also get then from DD Video, who have also just released the TEMPEST AT WAR.
I've got Target for Today - its first class. Theres also one called Target for Tonight, about specific raids by Bomber Command.

Another is called "Lest we Forget" it contains veterans talking about their experiences.

Sometimes on Rare occasions the BBC do documentaries which are also very good too!
