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. But The White Queen shows that the other way around is possible, as well. The BBC series consists of 10 parts, is inspired by the historical novels by Philippa Gregory and was co-produced by the pay tv channel Starz (who also brought us Spartacus). 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:
It's going to be interesting which version will be released on home video in which countries.
