Publisher's Summary

This 40th Anniversary special contains 16 episodes and spans all four decades of the series: the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Nicholas Parsons introduces each episode and provides fascinating background information on the game, as well as memories of its players and its devisor, Ian Messiter.
As funny and popular today as when it first began in 1967, Just a Minute challenges contestants to speak for one minute on a given subject without repetition, hesitation, or deviation. Regular players include Kenneth Williams, Clement Freud, Derek Nimmo, Peter Jones, and Paul Merton. Among the guests who also pit their wits - and their wit - against the clock are Ray Alan, Peter Cook, Stephen Fry, Sheila Hancock, Thora Hird, Geraldine Jones, John Junkin, Maureen Lipman, Alfred Marks, Bob Monkhouse, Jan Ravens, Tim Rice, Wendy Richard, Barry Took, Tommy Trinder and Victoria Wood.

One to get

A great classic collection. Nicholas Parsons gives commentary between episodes relating backstory and history of the people involved. Interesting to see how the show has developed and the influence Parsons has brought.

Of course, it's all brilliantly funny, and essential listening. Part of my need-them-to-live J.A.M. collection, which scares off the black dog days.

More please, Audible!
