Thursday, 15 March 2007
Filmed in March 2007, Heather Mills tells campaigning farmed animal welfare group, Viva!, why she believes that the farrowing crate is one of factory farmingís worst hidden horrors. The film also shows her taking part in covert undercover filming on a UK pig farm, and also contains footage from pig units from around Britain. (10 mins). Broadcast copies available on request .

Note: It is not known if the farm that Ms Mills visited, and the farms shown in other Viva! footage, supply Marks and Spencer. However, the farrowing crates shown are of a standard type and similar to those used by M&S, as confirmed in a meeting between M&S and Viva!.
