The BBC series of Shakespeare plays are available for purchase from
 
Ambrose Video Publishing Inc.
Dept. 1090C
1290 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 2245
New York, NY  10102-1010
USA
 
The prices, however, are steep.  $5000 for the complete set and $249.95
for individual plays.
 
I agree that the Cleese/Miller interpretation is the palatable for me.  I
also enjoyed the Richard II of Derek Jacobi - one of the best productions.

Re: John Cleese as Petruchio:
 
As a John Cleese/Monty Python fan I was eager to see him in "Shrew",
expecting it to be a slapstick/romp. I was wrong...
it was much better.  His Petruchio was funny but sensitive...one of
the best interpretations I've ever seen.  I, too, would be interested
in getting a copy of it.
