The Leaders' Debate

So, who's your money on? Mr Macaroon? Mr Brooon? Or Mr Nice Leg? No idea what I'm talking about? Well have a look at this...

Brilliant, isn't it? And equally brilliant are the DVDs produced by, featuring famous artists, scientists and explorers AND I've got one of each to give away to three lucky blog readers! All you have to do is leave a comment.... no, too easy. All you have to do is answer this simple question: which famous explorer also gives his name to not one, but TWO galaxies. And I don't mean items of cocoa-based confectionary, I'm talking star-clusters like the Milky Way!

The DVDs are aimed at children in Key Stages One and Two and I've seldom seen such entertaining and informative resources. In school you're forever scouting around for new and exciting ways of teaching children something, and these days you've got to compete with all manner of hi-tech entertainment. But compete you must, because if kids are bored they seldom learn, and that's a scientific fact just like the fact that children's brains can actually be damaged (physically) by the climate of fear I grew up with frequently as a schoolboy. Fascinatingly, most of what is now known about the brain has only been discovered in the last fifteen years. And at last, some of this knowledge is beginning to filter down to individual classrooms. But not all. So, if you'd like to give your little darlings a head-start in the field of science, exploration and fine art you could do a lot worse than invest in a set of these first-class DVDs. And no, they haven't paid me to say that: merely sent a set of DVDs which I've now watched and thoroughly enjoyed.

So, which famous world explorer gives his name to not one, but two galaxies?

Competition closes midnight Wednesday!
