IMAGINE taking an intense sensory adventure from the Atlas Mountains, through the Savannah lands to the Cape of Good Hope and from the Roof of Africa and the Kalahari, where the dark rainforests of the Congo meet the Atlantic Ocean.

Many of you will already have experienced this journey of a lifetime from the comfort of your armchairs though, with the BBCs tremendous six-part series, Africa.

Region by region, and with all-knowing narrative from Sir David Attenborough, Africa has given us an unrivalled view of the epic power of the landscape and the dramatic struggles of the creatures living there.

Viewers see fabulous footage of some of the rarest fish in the world, exploding insects and lizards that hunt on the backs of lions...

Not to mention giraffes doing battle for supremacy, fighting frogs and the struggles faced by hard-working dung beatles!

Using spanking new technology, the dedicated team behind the series have been able to reveal the surprising elements, extraordinary creatures and other fascinating secrets of an amazing continent.

We have DVD copies of this marvellous programme up for grabs in this week’s competition.

The DVD comes with extras including an exclusive interview with Sir David, out takes and exclusive deleted scenes.
