This new audiobook celebrates 25 years of the BBC radio show Just a Minute. Under the eye of its ever-jovial, though constantly embattled, chairman, Nicholas Parsons, four of the game's best known players, Clement Freud, Peter Jones, Derek Nimmo, and the irrepressible, not to say uncontrollable, Kenneth Williams, respond to some pretty silly topics with hilarious results in two complete programmes of this much-loved radio series. In addition such talented talkers as Peter Cook, Stephen Fry, Sheila Hancock, Paul Merton, and Victoria Wood are on hand.
Four episodes of the ever-popular BBC Radio 4 panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons, which showcases Peter Jones, one of the series' key players. Peter Jones is one of Just a Minute's well-loved contestants, whose warmth, wit and skill made him a pleasure and delight to listen to. These episodes showcase his highlights - the moments which reveal Peter Jones at the very top of his game.
Nicholas Parsons and Paul Merton introduce Ian Messiter's four classic archive episodes of the ever-popular comedy panel game. Just as uproariously funny - and terrifically popular - today as when it first began on BBC Radio 4 in 1967, Just a Minute challenges contestants to speak for one minute on a given subject without repetition, hesitation or deviation.
Four of the most sparkling editions from recent series of the ever-popular Radio 4 comedy panel game, chaired by Nicholas Parsons with regular players Paul Merton and Clement Freud, joined by a host of guest players.
Among the subjects hilariously tackled are The Scottish Play, The A to Z, An Infinite Number of Monkeys, Leonardo da Vinci, The Famous Five, Discovering America, Adam's Apple, The End of Time, and Little Green Men.
The Best of Just a Minute is a yearly event which brings together the greatest shows of the year. Just a Minute was devised by the late Ian Messiter, who came up with the idea on the top of a number 13 bus, where he suddenly remembered the horrible task of speaking for one minute without hesitation or deviation being meted out by one of his school masters to his class.
Nicholas Parsons presents four more specially selected archive episodes of the ever-popular comedy panel game from its early days. Just as uproariously funny and terrifically popular today as when it first began on BBC Radio 4 in 1968, Just a Minute challenges contestants to speak for one minute on a given subject without repetition, hesitation, or deviation.
