The special edition laserdisc features a 37-minute version of this documentary, compared to the 30-minute one found on the DVD (which was apparently shortened for a broadcast on Showtime). The omitted sections include the entirety of chapters 8 and 9 (about Lt. Dan's leg removal and the atmosphere at the Washington/rally scenes, total 6:06), additional footage of Michael Humphreys (young Forrest) at the end of chapter 4 (1:14), and for some reason 3 seconds of a church establishing shot in chapter 2.
