Edited editions of the Palace of Westminster edition (ranging from 5-15 minutes) are often shown on the BBC Parliament channel, when live coverage of the House of Commons, House of Lords, committees etc ends early, before the beginning of the next programme. These edited editions are used to fill the gaps.

The UKTV channel Yesterday frequently repeats the series. However the episodes are shown in an edited 46 minute format to allow for commercials.
