I don't believe there has been a video released of this production.
There was, however, a two album lp record released around the same time
as the production.

Hallmark is slowly releasing some of their videos; perhaps that is one
they would consider releasing?

Shatner

The Plummer Hamlet was shot at Elsinore to great fanfare in the 60s?.

He had done it  very successfully for Michael Langham at Stratford Ont
in the 56 ( I think) - but that was when he was expected to be the
reigning classical actor there as he grew older and matured. He chose a
different mountain.

I think it's very sad that, after his magnificent work in the RSC's
Nicholas Nickleby, Roger Rees should be automatically associated with
his appearances on Cheers.  Just shows the poisonous power of
lowest-common-denominator "culture."
