To win one of the above prizes simply answer the following question. What is the name of the real railway station that David Lean used as the main location in his film Brief Encounter?

Put your name, address, daytime telephone number and answer on a postcard and send it to Angel Cuello, Marketing Department, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5DL. Postcards need to be in by Friday 22 May, when winning entries will be selected.

A full list of the Treasures appears in a special supplement available with the June issue of Sight and Sound out tomorrow.
