In December 2002 BBC2's Arena celebrated 35 years of Just a Minute.
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Radio 4's most devious panel game, director Mary Dickinson and the Arena cameras follow quizmaster Nicholas Parsons and his four unruly panellists on their journeys to a recording in Canterbury.
Clement Freud indulges in a little light gambling before setting off, Linda Smith lets the train take the strain, biker Ross Noble opens the throttle down the A2, while Paul Merton drives to the place of pilgrimage.
Each share their thoughts on the competition ahead and answers the crucial question: Just how long is a minute really?
