Unlike the first 2 seasons, Universal decided to use the master of the German TV versions for the release of the third season box-set. Unfortunately, these versions are sometimes censored and also offer have an inferior image quality.

This is a comparison between the UK DVD released by Universal and the German DVD (interestingly enough including the uncensored version of this episode), also released by Universal.

German DVD: 48:36 minutes [PAL]
UK DVD: 43:47 minutes [PAL]

There are 2 shortened scenes which result in 1:35 minutes of missing footage.
At the beginning of the UK DVD's version you see a flashback to the previous episode (71 seconds). The German DVD begins with the A-Team tied up on the boat. This scene was already shown at the end of the previous episode on the UK DVD.

5th minute
In the German version the scene inside the camp begins much earlier. Tanja sees Brian in a cage and runs to him. Meanwhile 2 bad guys spot the A-Team and remember the brawl from the previous episode. They take revenge by punching Hannibal in the stomach. Then follows a short crosstalk with Doyle about killing the A-Team right now, which in their opinion would be the best idea. Then, the A-Team is also caged.
91 sec.

17th minute
Face and the temple are shown a little longer in the German version. The UK version already fades to the next scene.
4 sec.

The UK version sometimes fades from one scene to the next one while the German version only cuts to the next version, sometimes missing out on a few frames of footage (overall about 2 seconds).
