While The Night Manager was released on its original TV channels BBC One (UK) and AMC (US) as 6 60-minute episodes, it has been repacketed in other countries (at least Germany) as 8 45-minute episodes released on Amazon Video.
But not only that, in the course of that rescheduling it has also been slightly recut, with scenes reordered to some degree. For example the scene with the two set up robbers in Mallorca kidnapping Roper's son occurs a little earlier, as a kind of flash-forward, in episode S01E02, while it occurs more chronologically consistently (right before Pine is beaten up by them and taken to Roper's villa) in the Amazon version.
So my question is, why did they repacket the episodes into different length ones in the first place and why did they reorder some of the scenes? Was this done to make the chronology more continuous for international audiences or was the reordering done only because of the repacketing, which was done for entirely different reasons? And how far does this scene reordering actually go? Have they even switched scenes across episode boundaries or did they only reorder them inside their respective 60/45-minute blocks?
