Hope and Glory celebrates our British history, not the history that is full of ancient Kings and endless dates but a history that's about people like me and you.

I've chosen a event from every decade of the twentieth century; a moment in which something happened that changed our future. From the battle of the Somme to Live Aid, from the 66 world cup to the climbing of Everest.

Every day for 10 days starting May 31st I will be sharing a small piece of this story filmed from locations in the book and also giving you a special clue, once you have collected all these clues together it will form a question.

Log on to the website (www.stuartmaconie.com) or follow my Twitter link (@stuartmaconie) to find the clue each day.

We are giving away £500 worth of Lastminute.com vouchers so that you can you choose an experience that will create your own unique moment in your history.

Join me as I go in search of these big events in our history to see how they have shaped who we are as a nation today.

Once you have entered the competition, why not go on to the blog and write your own answer to the clues.

Good Luck.
