I don't know about the UK, but you might look at barnesandnoble.com -
that's where I purchased the DVD from ... amazon.com is now fraught with
terrible problems ...

I saw it just the other day at a supermarket here in Oregon.  If all
else fails, email me off list and I'll arrange to get you a copy.

The Internet Movie Data Base runs a chart with each title, showing its
availability in the US, the UK, and Germany. For Titus it lists a VHS
and DVD of the movie and a CD of the soundtrack, all available only in
the US. I can't say how reliable the information is, but it's a "major"
site. The Titus page is at: http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0120866

I don't know about the UK, but I have seen the DVD of _Titus_ (I assume
you're asking about Julie Taymor's film) at Blockbuster (a video rental
chain) here in New England (that's the USA, natch).

Good luck,

But surely anything available in the US or Canada is also available in
the UK, thanks to the admittedly rather primitive technology known as
credit cards and (snail) mail? Anyone who subscribes to the SHAKSPER
list and is looking for a Shakespeare title in video or DVD or audio
ought  to know that the Essential Reference Point is Tanya Gough's Poor
Yorick based at Stratford (Ont) http://www.bardcentral.com/index.html
where the very first item to strike the eye on the first page past the
entry procedures is the DVD of Titus.

It is good to note that Amazon.com etc seem determined to encourage us
all to use Tanya's services, not their own. They do not allow one to do
a search for Shakespeare's plays by author, for example. Unless
'Shakespeare' figures in the 'title' you will get very few results,
because most of the videos of the plays do not include the Bard's name
as title contents. In addition, Amazon.com gives virtually no
information about the contents, beyond the date of production so you
often have to try to read the photo of the case to find out which
production they want you to buy. When it comes to audiobooks
(audio-cassettes) it gets even worse because (so far as I can see) one
cannot search audiobooks as a separate category, the cassettes come up
mixed with books when you search for a particular play. And again it is
almost impossible to recognize which audio version they are selling.
Whereas PY lists audiobook versions by collection (Naxos etc) in its
main catalogue page.

So we are all the more grateful for Poor Yorick, even if its home page
will not let me register or buy anything at the moment but I'm sure it's
a glitch and nothing personal.
