What to expect

Just a Minute began on BBC Radio 4 in 1967 and has become a classic panel game which is still popular on Radio 4 today. Guests have to talk for 60 seconds on topics ranging from 'My Ticklish Bit' to 'Eating Winkles' without repetition, deviation or hesitation. As ever, the Chairman is suave but embattled Nicholas Parsons. Panellists are Peter Jones, Derek Nimmo, Paul Merton, Fred MacAulay, Graham Norton, Tim Rice, Linda Smith, Julian Clary, Jenny Eclair, Clement Freud, Stephen Frost and Tony Hawks. These four shows were recorded in Bath, Edinburgh, Brighton and Sheffield, with the latter show being Derek Nimmo's last appearance on Just a Minute.
