I appear to have the Visual Corp. version.

The first time I read Hammond's comments as wasn't quite sure what version (on TV) he was describing. Earlier (in the quote) he describes the US TV version as 1 hour long (or implies that it is). The UK version is clearly more than 15 minutes longer (although I suppose the US TV version may have only run to 45 minutes with commercials). Either way he doesn't ever appear to be talking about the 110 minutes version.

[For information] The Tolkien Teaching Pack that Deagol sites was from 1995; but the Visual Corp. version (from 'The Tolkien Partnership') was quite a bit earlier (1992; MR was forthcoming, and spelt wrong in the credits!)

I think I bought mine on Amazon...
