This is Channel 4's list of 100 Greatest Musicals. Because the list is from the channel's film series most of the entries are indeed in their film format, but occassional broadway-only productions have been included, and because of this I have made note exactly where this occurs and noted suitable placemarkers in instead.

Number 30: Cats "This is actually meant to be Cats, but nothing related actually exists in film form."
Uhhh what about the VHS that came out in 1998 that is now on DVD, and two special edition DVDs for a picture. Brilliant research has gone into this article I see.

Finally fixed. When this list was made there was no option to make lists with both TV and Film items. Thanks for the reminder!
