Nicholas Parsons presents four more specially-selected archival 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. Its mix of irreverent fun and ferocious competition has always attracted stellar names from the world of comedy and theatre.
In this collection, Sheila Hancock, Lance Percival, Wendy Richard, Tommy Trinder, Stephen Fry, and Jan Ravens pit their wits and their wit against regular players Kenneth Williams, Derek Nimmo, Clement Freud, Peter Jones, and Paul Merton. Nicholas Parsons, who has been at the helm of the series since it began as chairman and occasionally as player, introduces this sparkling quartet of editions and provides fascinating background information on the game.
