The Legend Of The Tamworth Two

The Legend Of The Tamworth Two

Not wanting to become just another roast dinner, two Tamworth pigs escaped from a slaughterhouse in January 1998. Butch and Sundance, as they were christened by an over-excited media, became folk-heroes as they avoided capture for over a week. They were eventually saved from certain death by a national newspaper that sent them to an animal sanctuary. This is their story - Babe-style.

Under the supervision of Tim Haines, the producer of Walking With Dinosaurs, real pigs are enhanced by computer technology to give them human-like characteristics. Backed up by a human cast, the plucky pigs journey through the English countryside to Tamworth, hoping to be reunited with their mother whilst the malevolent slaughterhouse boss, Wolf, plots their capture.

Will they be able to avoid the traps he has set and reach Tamworth? Or are they doomed to be served between two slices of bread with a bit of tomato ketchup?
