Four of the best 2015 episodes of the much-loved panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons. Just a Minute is a national institution. The Minute Waltz has been the signature tune for wonderfully witty entertainment since 1968, making the show one of the longest-running radio comedy shows of all time. In these four episodes, recorded at the BBC's Radio Theatreand Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, long-time panellists including Julian Clary, Stephen Fry, Paul Merton, Sheila Hancock and Liza Tarbuck return for more fast-paced fun. Taking on the challenge for the first time is David Tennant, who caused headlines by speaking uninterrupted for the full 60 seconds in his very first game! Among the topics tackled are 'Exit, Pursued by a Bear', 'Canterbury Tales', 'The Garden of England', 'Death and Taxes' and 'The Count of Monte Cristo'. Chaired by the redoubtable Nicholas Parsons, these four shows from Series 71 and 72 are the cream of the crop. So why wait for ‘JAM’ tomorrow, when you can have the best of 2015 today?Duration: 2 hours approx.
This is the panel game next to which all other panel games pale, a soft, snuggly blanket of a show drawn weekly over the nation in a fug of warmth, wordplay and wit. Its silliness, and its simple capacity to bask in the quick-wittedness of its panellists (even when they deliver their monologues so very s-l-o-w-l-y) make it joyous listening.
