    "Trainspotting - Deleted Scenes" 10m 30s
    "Trainspotting - Interview With Irvine Welsh" 2m 14s
    let's hope so

    I did some more digging and came up with this

    This work is made up of a number of separate components.
    Note that since February 2001 the BBFC has measured each component separately, but older works may not have the exact details, only a list of titles.
    00:00:00:00 | TRAINSPOTTING-DELETED SCENES-DELETED SCENE #24
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #31
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #32
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENES #73 & #110
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #142
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #143
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #188
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED SCENE #191
    00:00:00:00 | DELETED MONTAGE SCENE

    A film or video, together with associated trailers may exist in several versions and all versions known to the BBFC are listed below.

    Category Type Date Company Run Time Cut Title
    Video 06/09/2002 Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd 10m 30s No TRAINSPOTTING - DELETED SCENES

    Details are likely to be more complete and accurate for the version submitted most recently.
    When a film is transferred to video the running time will be shorter by approximately 4% due to the differing number of frames per second. This does not mean that the video version has been cut or re-edited.

    To be fair, those are on the existing Canadian DVD release. The version of the film to own of course is the excellent Criterion Laserdisc which I'd like to see re-issued as anamorphic on DVD.... Not looking likely.

    What does the Criterion have that the two R1 DVDs don't have besides a commentary?

    Jeff,

    Criterion Ed has British Theatrical version of the film (which wasnt cut like the UK home video versions were), commentary from Boyle, McGregor, Andrew MacDonald and John Hodge, nine deleted scenes with commentary, interview with Irvine Welsh and excellent liner notes inside the gatefold sleeve by Welsh.

    Oscar, I'd hope there's a slim chance we will eventually see it on DVD (Criterion Ed) given their relationship with Disney who have the rights to Trainspotting in the US (via Miramax). The transfer on the LD... I'd never seen the film look so good in terms of colour.

    I understand the current version of Trainspotting is cut in the UK (needle puncturing skin if I remember right). I doubt the BBFC policy will have changed or that this would be resubmitted anyway.

    The bbfc website lists an audio commentary and says that all previous cuts have been waived,so it looks like I'll be buying this when it is released.

    According to DVD Reviewer, it will be an extended cut of the film that is being released. Dont know if this is accurate or not
