I’m writing from What’s On TV, the UK’s biggest selling TV listings mag.

In our issue on sale 12 November, we’re running a competition to win a trip to Paris to go to the European premiere of The Two Towers. Now, since we’re not allowed to fix these things, it means that I can’t snaffle the prize for myself – so I thought readers of theonering.net might like to know about it!

The prize is return travel to Paris via Eurostar for two people, including transfers, two nights accommodation (bed and breakfast) in the four-star Hotel Sofitel, and two tickets to the premiere on 10 December 2002.

The competition is only open to residents of the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, and the winner and their companion for the trip must both be over 18. Oh, and you must be available to travel on 9 December and return on 11 December – otherwise you’ll have two very hot tickets and no way of using them!

I promise you that I’ve not been asked by anyone at the magazine to promote the competition by writing to you. I’m a big old fan, and would kill for this prize, but sadly I’m just not allowed to enter. I only want to increase the odds of another deserving fan winning by telling you chaps about it!

Remember, the competition is in the issue of What’s On TV on sale on 12 November 2002 – the one with EastEnders’ Laura and Ian on the cover. Oh, and the question you have to answer to enter the competition is painfully easy… Put it this way: the answer starts with the letters “J R R”. Good luck!
