To celebrate 50 years of Just a Minute, 12 previously unpublished archive episodes of the much-loved BBC Radio 4 panel game, presented by Nicholas Parsons
What better way to mark a glorious half century of Just a Minute than with a collection of episodes from each of the programme's six decades, ranging from 1968 to the very special Christmas 2016 edition, Just a Minute Does Panto!
As has been the case for each of those 50 years, Nicholas Parsons chairs every edition with impeccable manners and good humour. The plethora of seasoned players includes Kenneth Williams, Derek Nimmo, Peter Jones, Paul Merton, Graham Norton, Tony Hawks, Gyles Brandreth and Sheila Hancock, and competing alongside them is an array of celebrated guests including Peter Cook, Barry Took, Brian Johnston, Ian Hislop, Betty Marsden, Sue Perkins, Liza Tarbuck, Jeremy Hardy, Stephen Fry and many others.
Who can talk for one minute on a given subject without hesitation, repetition or deviating from the subject? Who will leap in at the last second to trounce the competition and secure the lead? Find out as we play Just a Minute!
This is the panel game next to which all other panel games pale
