'Welcome to Just a Minute! And as The Minute Waltz fades away... please talk for 60 seconds on a random subject without repetition, hesitation or deviation...'


First broadcast in 1968, Just a Minute is one of the longest-running radio comedy shows. A national institution, it is also loved and listened to all around the world.


In these four episodes, attempting to talk non-stop for sixty seconds are regulars Paul Merton and Clement Freud, with a host of special guests including Jenny Eclair,Maria McErlane, Chris Addison, Marcus Brigstocke, Maureen Lipman, Pam Ayres,Julian Clary, Gyles Brandreth and Graham Norton.


Long-suffering host Nicholas Parsons controls the proceedings (and the unruly panellists) while among the subjects hilariously tackled are 1066, Welsh rarebit, Timbuktu, the aristocracy, my favourite sin, how to be a thespian, public relations, forbidden fruit, taking the waters and Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells.


Don't waste a minute: there's two whole hours of frenetic, fast-moving fun to enjoy here in these four episodes of Radio 4's most devious panel game.
