Not content with just one competition in the run up to Christmas, we’ve got another treat up our sleeves. Warner Bros. & Pathé have given us 2 Blu-ray copies of the critically acclaimed film The Great Escaper to give away to 2 lucky readers.

More information on how to enter the competition can be found at the bottom of the page, but first let us tell you more about the prize.

THE GREAT ESCAPER is available to rent on Premium Video on Demand from 6th November via digital retailers in the UK. The film will also be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on 11th December.

Inspired by true events, the film tells the story of octogenarian Bernard Jordan’s escape from his care home to attend the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in France:

In the summer of 2014, Bernard Jordan (Michael Caine) made global headlines. He had staged a “great escape” from his care home to join fellow war veterans on a beach in Normandy, commemorating their fallen comrades at the D-Day Landings 70th anniversary.

It was a story that captured the imagination of the world as Bernie embodied the defiant, “can-do” spirit of a generation that was fast disappearing. But of course, it wasn’t the whole story. It was an inspirational but sanitised retelling of one man’s need to come to terms with the lasting trauma of war.

Bernie’s adventure, spanning a mere 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (Glenda Jackson) – THE GREAT ESCAPER celebrates their enduring love but always with an eye to the lessons we might learn from the Greatest Generation.
