Just a Minute: Best of 2019: 4 episodes of the much-loved BBC Radio comedy game

Author: Bbc Digital Audio Narrator: Nicholas Parsons, Paul Merton Release Date: November 2019

Four laughter-filled editions of the long-running and much-loved BBC Radio 4 panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons In this selection of episodes, the entertaining players brave enough to employ their wits and ingenuity against both the clock and their competitors are Paul Merton, Julian Clary, Sheila Hancock, Josh Widdicombe, Gyles Brandreth, Fern Britton, Jenny Eclair and Kerry Godliman. As always, the name of the game is to speak for one minute on a given subject without falling foul of hesitation, repetition or deviation. Why is Josh known as the Beast of Dartmoor? What is Julian's morning routine? Does Sheila have a party trick, and when exactly did the last century begin? When should Gyles use the 'historical present', and will Fern ever get to tell her story about dinner in Venice? Fingers on buzzers please, as we play Just a Minute!

What would Jonathan Agnew do if he wasn't a cricket commentator? Who would play Romesh Ranganathan in a film of his life? What's the naughtiest thing Sara Pascoe did as a child?

Instead, panellists can pick anyone they like: dad, cousin, best friend, mother-in-law. What is Bridget Christie's worst fear? Or Ainsley Harriott's worst habit? Or Seann Walsh's worst gig? All these burning questions, and more, will be answered in this BBC comedy panel show hosted by Miles Jupp, where panellists are tested on how well they know their nearest and dearest. Get to know panellists such Rebecca Front, Roisin Conaty, Mark Steel, Tom Wrigglesworth, Ed Byrne, Tony Hawks, Rachel Riley, Richard Madeley, Dave Gorman, Lucy Porter, Richard Osman, Frankie Boyle, Susan Calman, Sara Cox, Katherine Ryan, Alan Johnson and Sarah Millican.
