What to expect

'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 regular Paul Merton attempting to talk non-stop for sixty seconds, along with special guests Gyles Brandreth, Julian Clary, David Mitchell, Tony Hawks, Sheila Hancock, Charles Collingwood, Josie Lawrence, Chris Neill, Ross Noble, Shappi Khorsandi and John Bishop. Among the subjects hilariously tackled are How to write a love letter, Barking, Spitting feathers, Over the hill, The French, Getting away with it, A nasty habit - and Our Chairman's darkest secret! 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 laugh-out-loud shows. Winner of a Sony Radio Academy Gold Award for Best Comedy in 2003 and a Silver Award in 2010. 'An evergreen show at the top of its form, still sounding as fresh as ever. A smart single programme entry that started with an exciting home run from Paul Merton' - The Judges.
