I was always told there was no surviving video (other than short clips) of this production, but the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has a complete video of it. The quality isn’t great, so it will probably never be released, but you can watch the entire thing at their archive. After watching it, it’s easy to see why this production was so influential.

One of the so-called Pavier quartos, actually printed in 1619, but backdated. From the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust archive.
