A sparkling collection of 22 classic episodes of the ever-popular BBC Radio 4 panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons. Showcasing five key players from the past five decades - Sheila Hancock, Gyles Brandreth, Jenny Eclair, Stephen Fry ,and Graham Norton - the collection also includes two bonus Christmas themed editions of the show.
Loved for the verbal dexterity, wicked wit and competitive edge of its participants, Just a Minute has welcomed scores of guest players to the game since it began in 1967. Among the most successful and popular of those are Sheila Hancock, Gyles Brandreth, Jenny Eclair, Stephen Fry, and Graham Norton. This audiobook presents four specially selected episodes for each of them, all published for the first time, all highlighting the players at their cleverest and funniest.
With episodes taken from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s, there is strong participation from some of the more regular players of the game: Clement Freud, Kenneth Williams, Derek Nimmo, Peter Jones, and Paul Merton. Others playing here include Tony Hawks, Linda Smith, Julian Clary, Ross Noble, Tim Rice, William Rushton, Martin Jarvis, and many more. As always, Nicholas Parsons is the capable chairman of the game.

Just a Minute - This is Brilliant
Just a Minute features most of my favourite comedians from my childhood to the modern day. The fact that the comedy is off the cuff and delivered at pace makes this a perfect listen to me.
Just a Minute is one of radio 4's best comedies. The nearest you are likely to hear is "I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue" which is good but can be occasionally irritating.
I regularly buy the Just a Minute collections. You are likely to find some of the episodes in some of the earlier collections but for such a large volume of episodes this is well worth using one of your credits for.
Hearing Peter Jones is always a pleasure as he reminds me of Hitchhiker's Guide at its best. His humour is always well timed and perfectly pitched.
