The cut made by the British Board of Film Classification was to the scene in which a mouse is held beneath the surface of a liquid, which it is forced to breathe. The censor deemed this to be painful for the animal and the shot was replaced by reaction shots of two characters (Monk and Hippy, I think).

Came with a fold out insert detailing about the restoration of the film and the extended scenes inserted by James Cameron.

 Additional Information by hippiedalek    21/05/2015 

Both the video and audio quality drop significantly during the censored scene. The aspect ration also changes at this point. Once the scene is over the quality and ratio are restored.
