In the mid-2000s, the UK's BBC One showed the Trimark version, with Arnold's original accent throughout. This version also reveals that the original on location audio was seemingly never re-recorded, due to abrupt changes in ambient sound levels of dialogue, and background sounds. Thus, it plays as akin to a pre-release edit prior to the final release sound mix.
