BBC showed the Walt Disney American Experience documentary but they have edited it down 4 hours to 2. What they left out I don't know. #BBCtwo

What? How dare they! What exactly did they show? I could then tell you what they left out. I saw the whole 4-hour documentary.

Let see.
Episode 1 had brief recap of Walt's childhood, his Kansas city days, briefly mentioned Oswald, moving to California, walking around Universal, Mickey Mouse, Hyperion studio, depression, Snow White and ended on Pinocchio
Episode 2 started with Fantasia, strike, overly huge segment on Song of the south, more depression, Cinderella, more depression, Disneyland, Mary Poppins and his death.

Does that help?

Hmm... a little.

Some stuff I remember was when Walt Disney blamed himself for the gas leak that killed his mother, which affected him greatly to kill off Bambi's mom. I also remember his leap over to live-action and how they criticized his movies for being "corny", to which he responded with, "I like corn." Did they mention how much he liked trains? Did they also mention the wartime cartoons?
Then Disneyland with unfinished attractions. Also, when they commented that he was qualified to be president of the United States, to which he said, "Why would I wanna be president? I'm the king of Disneyland." I also remember seeing clips of him talking about Babes in Toyland.

I don't know... I'd have to see the special myself to see what info they left out.

To answer your questions in order.

No to his mom.
No to the corny.
A bit of trains but only a line.
No to wartime.
No to president.

Wow... truly a lot that they left out...

Indeed they did. Quite honestly you could fill  24 hour documentary about Walt. That would be quite long though.
