Hustle: Series 3 on Teleport - Correct episode length? (Approx 52 mins an ep)

Been watching these on Telewest Teleport - are they shorter these days or are Teleport showing a cut version? I'm sure they used to be about an hour long.

They are cut if they are that long.

There are I believe 3 versions
BBC original broadcast at around 59 to 60 minutes for all 3 series
International TV edits (allow for ad breaks) around 50 to 52 minutes
US TV edits (allow for ad breaks) around 45 minutes

This was the problem with Warner's first release of the UK Series 1 DVD as they used the International TV edit version, so it was cut on original release. I was one of the people who forced Warner to reissue an uncut version. Got a finding against them from the ASA as they advertised it as uncut when it was not.
You can tell if you have the cut DVD buy looking at the runtime shown on the back sleeve. If cut Warner did offer a mail in replacement service, not sure if this is still available.
The Series 2 DVD was issued as the uncut version straight off.

On Hallmark they must be showing the US or International edit as they are screening it in a 1 hour slot with ad breaks and promos, like they do with Spooks.
