I have not seen version iplayer before.  Does anyone know what it signifies?

b08y7ntl (Watchdog s38e03) was broadcast at 2000 on 12 July.  For about 40 
hours it was shown as NOT AVAILABLE in the iPlayer.  Although I was not 
aware of it before, programmes are divided into four clip on the programme's 
web page.  After 40 hours one clip appeared and the status changed to This 
programme will be available soon.  The remaining clips and version iplayer 
without subtitles appeared after about 46 hours.  There seems to be a full 
complement of modes.

I did wonder whether one of the objects of the programme had objected to the 
coverage, but the  actual duration is 58min 37s so not much can have been 
removed.  When programmes are edited for the iPlayer they are usually shown 
as version editorial or even editorial2.
