BABE (1995)

Hard to imagine a more charming picture than this mix of live action and animatronics about an orphaned pig who learns how to herd a flock of sheep.

BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985)

A lovely twist on time travel with Michael J Fox as Marty McFly going back to the 1950s to matchmake for his future parents. Features an ingenious script, pitch-perfect performances - and a gull-winged DeLorean.

BUGSY MALONE (1976)

Funny spoof that hits on the clever idea of casting children as gangsters - with Tommy guns that fire "gunk". The young cast (including Jodie Foster) inhabit the roles with real conviction.

CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG (1968)

Musical fantasy about a dilapidated car with magical powers, which children (especially younger ones) adore despite its uneven patches.

E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982)

One of Steven Spielberg's best films about an adorable little alien trying to get home and the boy who befriends him. Both children and adults love it.

MARY POPPINS (1964)

You'll remember nanny Julie Andrews and chimney sweep Dick van Dyke from this disarming fantasy world story. Great songs and dance routines; it all adds up to movie magic.

THE MUPPET MOVIE (1979)

Age cannot wither the Muppets, and this 30-year-old account of Kermit the Frog's odyssey from tadpole to movie star holds up well. Featuring the whole gang.

THE NEVER ENDING STORY (1984)

Gentle fantasy adventure in which a young boy picks up a mystical book about a unique world threatened by outside forces. Nothing here to upset the kiddies, and the sets and effects are first rate.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (1970)

Beloved E Nesbit children's novel, adapted smartly and with wry humour. Three siblings embark on rail-related adventures while missing their soldier father.

STAND BY ME (1986)

An affectionate, nostalgic slab of Americana set in the 1950s in which four teenage boys set out to find the corpse of a missing boy. With River Phoenix.
