Jesus film on BBC2 today

The 1999 American Jesus film (dir. Roger Young, starring Jeremy Sisko as Jesus) gets its first network TV broadcast in the UK today. They are showing it in two parts and the first part is on BBC2 this afternoon at 1.30 p.m.--3.00 p.m. It could be a better slot, but at least it's getting aired. I quite like the film -- it has some great moments, e.g. Jesus dancing. There are two different versions of the film and I am hoping it's the version I haven't seen. The one on commercial video release is the shorter version without the post-resurrection scene and with a lot of other material cut. The best place to go for details on this, including clips of the footage that was cut is:
