Publisher's Summary

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.

THE collection to get!

This is one of two ten hour plus J.A.M. collections - I wish they'd release some more, perhaps collecting the one hour downloads together.

This is so good, I listen to it EVERY night. Love it so much.

Part of my need-them-to-live collection (also, see Goon Shows).

Everything you need!

Review with no repetition, deviation, hesitation

This audio book was found to be funny, I wasn't as keen on some of the earlier recordings but the more recent episodes had us suitably entertained for hours. Particularly listening whilst driving kept me chuckling. Contestants like Paul Merton, Graham Norton, Jenny Eclair, Tony Hawks and Stephen Fry made a positive review easier to write because they made my friends smile while listening. Further Just a Minute books will be purchased in due course. It's the kind of publication that can be re-listened to over and again without boredom settling in.
