Hey ... that is Norty
[size=5]Miami Vice - The BBC Cuts.[/size]
Season’s One and Two of Miami Vice were screened uncut by the BBC, with the only exception being that they placed the opening teaser sequence after the title sequence instead of before them.
Between Season’s two and three the Hungerford massacre occurred and the BBC then began to edit violent television programme’s to remove anything which could cause offence. When Miami Vice returned for Season Three, only a few episodes survived the censor’s scissors.
1) When Irish Eyes Are Crying. - Banned.
The BBC banned the Season opener because the story mentioned the IRA and the situation in Northern Ireland.
2) Stone’s War. - Cut.
Footage of the priest being shot and killed. After Stone’s cameraman is shot all the footage showing the dead villagers and children was removed. An entire scene was cut where O’Hara tortures Stone. Another entire scene where O’Hara shoots Stone in the leg. In the final shoot-out, O’Hara screaming and shooting Stone was cut.
3) Killshot. - Cut.
Every shot of Tico hitting and strangling the prostitute has been removed, this footage appears in at least three scenes. The shots of Tico snorting cocaine and the hallucinations that follow. During the final shoot-out, footage of two men being killed.
4) Walk-Alone. - Cut.
An entire scene was cut where Tubbs is told he is a walk-alone and then him seeing his cellmate hanging in his cell. A brief shot of Tubb’s being punched while tied to a chair. Footage of Tubbs using a guard as a shield, then the guard getting shot, followed by Castillo shooting a tower guard.
5) The Good Collar. - Cut.
Footage of a dead junkie with a needle in their arm. A lengthy sequence was removed showing several people being beaten up by Count Walker’s bodyguards. After the car blows up, the rest of the scene is cut. This shows a man on fire, Tubbs lying injured and Crockett trying to put the fire on the man out.
6) Shadow In The Dark. - Shown Uncut.
7) El Viejo. - Banned.
Banned by the BBC for excessive violence.
8) Better Living Through Chemistry. - Cut.
Virtually all of the shoot-out in the Disco was cut, only brief footage of people firing machine guns exists in the BBC version and no one is seen being shot or killed. The final shoot out is also severely cut. Only one person is killed in the BBC version and all the footage of people actually being shot has been removed.
9) Baby Blues. - Cut.
At the start footage of a Columbian woman being hit by a soldier at the start has been removed. The footage of the second gunman being killed by the plane, was cut, he doesn’t appear in the BBC version. A very short cut showing several people shooting Famiglia at the end. Only Crockett shoots him in the BBC version.
10) Streetwise. - Cut.
The footage showing the flick knife and the hooker being beaten was cut. During the attack on the cops house all footage of people being shot at and killed have been removed. The final shoot-out has been severely cut so that only three shots are seen being fired. The original contains a lengthy gunfight.
NOTE- UK Gold’s version has a brief sequence of Crockett talking to the cops wife edited out for timing reasons.
11) Forgive Us Our Debts. - Cut.
Footage of Crockett’s partner being shot and thrown against the wall was removed. The killing of Albiero, ends with the gun being pointed. The actual shots being fired and his body slumping have been cut.
