There's a longer, more comprehensive version
7 September 2006 | by (SF, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

The version shown by Channel 4 in the UK is quite a bit longer (77 minutes) than the version described here which, it seems, was the badly edited version shown on a number of PBS stations in the US.

Missing from the shortened version are a number of effects that lend gravity to the events but also - and more crucially - are a number of pen pictures that portray a flicker of humanity in some of those featured.

See the original version and you will notice methodology, delivery and continuity are excellent. A one stop shop on a set of warped individuals from the top to the bottom.
