When a brochure was dropped through the Mee family's letterbox, advertising a 30-acre zoo for sale, they found it very difficult to turn down.

Now, the Mee family's purchase of Dartmoor Zoo in 2006 is being turned into a movie, starring Matt Damon.

Benjamin Mee, bought the zoo in Devon, after quitting his job as a newspaper journalist.
