From Robertson to Hollywood: 'Babe' turns 25

(Premium content) Premium content

Daryl Sparkes reminisces about 'Babe''s technological prowess, and some anecdotes from set, on the film's 25th anniversary.

Many years, and many film sets later, I heard from a friend who was working on a movie that mixed cute furry farm animals with state of the art technology. I knew instantly I had to get smuggled on this one.
