So apparently this had a different title when it aired on the other side of the Atlantic? Obviously the rest of the world isn't ready for the devestating puns American industry is capable of.
Anyway, resolved: Baltar has some problems. I can see why he wouldn't want to expose a Cylon to its face, but he's as much at risk from Cylon sabotage as anyone else; moreso, if someone he's vouched for goes on to conclusively demonstrate their Cylonity. (For that matter, I don't think I'd even announce that I was testing for Cylons; I'm sure they could come up with some other plausible reason to collect blood samples.) But perhaps Six has told him not to expose anyone? I mean, this works out perfectly for the Cylons. They can be tested without worry and lull the fleet into a false sense of security. (Assuming what she wants corresponds with what the Cylons as a whole want.)
I also liked her obvious distaste for Mrs. Tigh.
And finally some intelligence gathering! Even if it turns out that they were just being fed false data.

Baltar's in an odd position. (No, not the one Starbuck found him in!) It's one thing to be afraid of exposing a Cylon to its face, but yet another to invoke the wrath of Six. She probably doesn't want him outing all of her compatriots.
As for Mrs. Tigh, we really aren't sure whether she's a Cylon or not. But I like Apollo's line there: "If she's not [a Cylon], we're in big trouble."

A friend of mine DL'd and burned to DVD all the episodes that have aired on UK's SkyOne thus far. He not only burned the episodes, but formatted them w/a directory and included an "extra's" disc with lots of kewel images and some commentary.
But I digress....
Each of the discs has the episode titles and every title from the SkyOne broadcasts has been the same as those on the SciFi Channel broadcasts. The SkyOne broadcasts have included a few extra scenes here and there, but no major differences that I've noticed from the SFC airings.
As for Baltar, I'm pretty certain he's not a Cylon. That's based off of having watched all 13 episodes, tho there's nothing much different we see later that we've not already seen in these episodes up to "Tigh Me Up..." I'm fairly certain that Six is actually "in" his head, tho. Prolly as some sort of implanted bio-chip and/or transceiver type thing. There have been too many coincidences up to this episode that leave me convinced this is the case.

One of my favorite games to play watching this series is insisting that any major character is a Cylon and then coming up with ridiculous details to support my argument.
