There is a series of G&S productions which were made for TV about 20 =
years ago which are available on DVD from Acorn Media (should be =
available through your vendor of choice). The performances are decent =
for the most part but many of them have substantial cuts in them to fit =
the opera into a 2 hour TV slot. They also had a gimmick of featuring a =
non-musical/operatic performer in a key role, which sometimes borders on =
the unwatchable (Vincent Price?? William Conrad??). The series billed =
itself originally as The Complete Gilbert and Sullivan, but it did not =
include Utopia Limited or The Grand Duke, or any attempt at =
reconstricting the lost Thespis. I wouldn't want to count on PPR being =
easily obtainable - as I recall they were jointly produced by PBS and =
the CBC, but shot in the UK with mostly British performers.
=20
There are a few of the more popular shows done by the Australian Opera =
in a somewhat more legit fashion which are (were?) available on DVD from =
Image. The Jonathan Miller staging of The Mikado from English National =
Opera has come out recently on DVD too.
=20
There were VHS releases of some of the productions from the Stratford =
Festival in Canada, but the rights on these expired many years ago, and =
I don't think they were ever reissued. They were decidedly not for the =
purists either.
=20
As for "the older the better", there are two theatrical film versions of =
The Mikado, both originating with the D'Oyly Carte company: the older of =
the two stars Martyn Green and Kenny Baker, the later one is pure D'Oyly =
Carte from the 70's. I think these were both part of the Janus =
collection, which has gone to Swank as far as I know (are you out there, =
Jessica?). The old one was available on DVD but may have gone out of =
print.

I may have sent this question earlier--if so, my apologies--but does =
anyone out there know a source for G & S on video or DVD, preferably =
with performance rights options?
The older the better!
