Do-Re-Mi on DVD

The Sound of Music may be more than 40 years old but it's still capturing the nation's attention. This summer Graham Norton will be hosting a new BBC TV show How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, searching, through open auditions around the country, for a Maria to appear in Andrew Lloyd Webber's new production which opens at the London Palladium in November.

If you too yearn to sing along to favourites such as "Do-Re-Mi" and "Edelweiss" then we have the perfect treat for you this week as The Sound Of Music sing-along edition DVD (RRP pound;12.99) and the collector's edition DVD are now available on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. We have 10 of the sing-along DVDs (which contain the fully restored film, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, with new karaoke-style subtitles) to give away to TES readers.

For your chance to win just answer this question: The Sound of Music is based on the true story of which family? a) Von Trapp b) Robinson.
