Summary

Four laughter-filled editions of the long-running, and much-loved BBC Radio 4 panel game, chaired by Nicholas Parsons.

In this selection of episodes, the entertaining players brave enough to employ their wits and ingenuity against both the clock and their competitors are Paul Merton, Julian Clary, Sheila Hancock, Josh Widdicombe, Gyles Brandreth, Fern Britton, Jenny Eclair, and Kerry Godliman.

As always, the name of the game is to speak for one minute on a given subject without falling foul of hesitation, repetition or deviation.

Why is Josh known as the Beast of Dartmoor? What is Julian’s morning routine? Does Sheila have a party trick, and when exactly did the last century begin? When should Gyles use the ‘historical present’, and will Fern ever get to tell her story about dinner in Venice? 

Fingers on buzzers please, as we play Just a Minute!
