‘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 1967, 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. These four episodes find regulars Paul Merton and Clement Freud attempting to talk non-stop for sixty seconds, along with special guests Gyles Brandreth, Jack Dee, Pam Ayres, Sir Tim Rice, Tony Hawks, Liza Tarbuck, Sheila Hancock, David Mitchell, Josie Lawrence and Sue Perkins. Among the subjects hilariously tackled are tomboys, my secret vice, charisma, hot air, ‘Speakers’ Corner’, cat lovers, agony aunts and bugs. Join host Nicholas Parsons and the distinguished panellists, as they use their intellect, imagination and verbal dexterity to beat the clock and win the points in these four ferociously funny shows.
