The White Queen With Two Versions
The British channel BBC is widely known for high profile costume series and entertainment. US channels like to apply cuts in order to shorten British series for their audience or airing schedue.

And their viewers obviously have other standards.
As a result of that, the production studio Company Pictures has manufactured two versions of the series. One for the rather conservative BBC audience and one for the paying Starz consumers. The comparison made by the British newspaper Daily Mail shows some alternate shots:
