Actor Sam Neill talks about the last time he watched his movie Jurassic Park, alongside his son and the late Princess Diana. Jurassic Park is set to be re-released in 3D in 2013.

Sam Neill: "I do get tweets, a lot of followers are very excited that they're rereleasing 'Jurassic Park' on the big screen, it hasn't been seen on the big screen for twenty years or something..."

George: "When was the last time you saw it?"

Sam Neill: "Well the last time I saw it was, was in Leicester Square sitting beside Princess Diana, and uh... The one and only time I met her... And my son was sitting here, he was ten or 11 at the time, and uh, and the Princess was beside me, and I was naturally a little bit nervous - it was a rather cold sort of theatre with a draft flowing that way from my son across, and to my appalled chagrin, about the time the dinosaurs started appearing you know, and things got scary, my son Tim started to fart..."
