Just a Minute's Indian Adventure

For 45 years, Just a Minute has been challenging contestants to talk for one minute on a subject without hesitation, deviation or repetition - a feat seldom achieved.

To celebrate its milestone birthday, the host of the BBC Radio 4 panel game - Nicholas Parsons - travelled to India to meet some of the game's fans, and to record special editions of the programme.

On his journey, he found fast-paced hybrid versions of Just a Minute - so-called 'jamming' - being played in clubs across the country.

Just a Minute's Indian Adventure can be heard on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 2 April at 11:30 BST - then available on BBC iPlayer.
