This is the best version by far. Don't know why the third version got made.

...and this will make those who've never seen it/don't have it very happy. There we go then, only 14 years for an 'official' DVD release ;0)

I had a copy made by a fan for me from Australia. Got misplaced when I moved. Glad to be able to have it again. I agree; don't know why they ever made the third version.
