Apes up for grabs

30th April 2004 at 01:00
It is 35 years since Charlton Heston crash-landed on a bizarre planet where mute humans ran wild in packs, and oran-utangs, chimps and gorillas on horseback ruled the roost. Planet of the Apes, which also starred Roddy McDowell and Kim Hunter as benevolent chimps, broke new ground with its stunning make-up and special effects.

To celebrate, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has just released a special double DVD set of the film that spawned two TV series and a recent remake by Tim Burton. The DVD also contains previously unseen footage, interviews with the stars and a wealth of other features. It costs pound;19.99, but The TES has four copies to give away. Send your name and address on a postcard or by email to the address on the right marked Apes offer.

The first four names drawn on May 6 will win.
