Win Empire of the Sun DVD and book

3rd March 2006 at 00:00
Steven Spielberg's 1987 war epic Empire of the Sun is another classic we thought you'd enjoy on these long winter nights. Based on JG Ballard's bestselling autobiographical novel, it's a tale of a wealthy British schoolboy living in Shanghai who is caught up in the horrors of the Second World War.

Starring a young Christian Bale, John Malkovich and Miranda Richardson, the Empire of the Sun two-disc special edition DVD is released on March 6 by Warner Home Video, pound;19.99. We have five copies of the DVD and five copies of the book, published by Harper Perennial, pound;7.99, to give away. To enter, simply answer this question: Shanghai is in China or Japan?

Mark your answers Banned Books or Empire of the Sun and send them on a postcard to the TES address or by email to Remember to include your address and contact details. Entries close March 9.
