Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
The US television version maintains the same running time as the theatrical version (to the second), but eliminates much nudity, violence and swearing. To compensate, a number of extra scenes have been rescued from the cutting-room floor. It is this TV version that was used for the British video release (on three different labels - EMI, Warners and Lumiere), with more footage cut by the distributor.
