WELCOME TO JUST A MINUTE!

starring CLEMENT FREUD, GRAHAM NORTON, TONY HAWKS and ROSS NOBLE, chaired by NICHOLAS PARSONS (Radio, 16 February 2004)


NICHOLAS PARSONS: Welcome to Just A Minute!

THEME MUSIC

NP: Hello, my name is Nicholas Parsons. And as the Minute Waltz fades away once more it is my huge pleasure to welcome our many listeners throughout the world, those who tune into the World Service, Radio Four, Radio Seven or even get us through the Internet. We welcome them. And of course itís a pleasure to welcome the four exciting, distinctive and talented players who this week are going to play Just A Minute. We have on my left a most distinguished couple of comedians here, it is Graham Norton and Ross Noble. And sitting on my right, we have a comedian and also a comic and humorous writer, and well, a man who has done nearly everything there is to do in our country, and the comedian is Tony Hawks, and the other man is Clement Freud. Please welcome all four of them! And as usual I am going to ask them to speak on a subject that I will give them, and they will try and do that without hesitation, repetition or deviation. Beside me sits Janet Staplehurst, she will help me keep the score, she will blow a whistle when the 60 seconds are up. And this particular edition of Just A Minute is coming from the Drill Hall. And we have a lovely delightful audience who have come from all corners of the metropolis to cheer us on our way. As we start the show with Clement Freud. Clement, the subject in front of me is 10 things I hate. Tell us something about that subject in this game starting now.

CLEMENT FREUD: Iím not sure 10 things. I hate garlic when itís raw. I dislike hugely desiccated coconut on anything. Therapeutic sandals, I believe that if you have some trouble with your feet, it ought to be between you and your extremities, and I want no part of it. I hate New York in June, how about you?

BUZZ

NP: Clement Freud, you were the first to challenge.

CF: Hesitation. I said ďhow about youĒ and nobody said anything.

NP: I know, and you got in first so you challenged yourself, and ah your challenge was repetition. Is that right?

CF: Hesitation.

NP: Hesitation. Yes you did hesitate Clement, so thatís a correct challenge, so I suppose I have to give you a point.

LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: Please donít make a habit of this because it would make my job impossible! So if you have a correct challenge and you get a point for that of course, so Clementís got his first point. And heís still got 36 seconds with the same subject, 10 things I hate starting now.

CF: I hate people who change the laws in games, like challenging themselves and then getting a point for it! I hate anyone who votes differently to me...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged.

ROSS NOBLE: Repetition of anyone. He hates anyone and he hates anyone...

NP: Yes indeed!

GRAHAM NORTON: Yes!

RN: Iím like a young Sherlock Holmes!

NP: So well done Ross, youíve got a correct challenge, therefore a point, and 24 seconds to tell us something about 10 things I hate starting now.

RN: I hate green bottles, especially when theyíre placed on a wall. Thatís why that song comes in so handy for me. Ten... particular receptacles...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TONY HAWKS: I was thinking he was going to go into Ten Green Bottles, but he cleverly tricked me!

NP: Yeah!

RN: Like a young Sherlock Holmes!

TH: Yeah!

NP: So Tony, good to hear from you, but it didnít work, and ah Ross you had an incorrect challenge, you get a point for that of course. There are 14 seconds for 10 things I hate starting now.

RN: I hate cats and if there is 10 of them, that makes it worse. If you were to get those feline creatures and put them in front of me with names such as Steve, Brian, Trevor, Kevin, Archie, Terence...

WHISTLE

NP: I wonít ask you what you would do Ross. You got a point for speaking as the whistle went, thatís what happens in this game. If anyone is speaking when that goes, he gets the extra point. It was Ross Noble who has got three points at the end of the round, and is naturally in the lead. Tony Hawks, will you take the next round, the subject is leadership qualities. Tell us something about leadership qualities in Just A Minute starting now.

TH: It seems to be today that when I look at our politicians, the leadership quality that you need the most is to be able to state the obvious. They turn up at a major disaster and they look sad and say ďthis is very disappointing, isnít it, we send out our sympathyĒ. Brilliantly, they never say ďthis is good, letís have more of this...Ē

BUZZ

NP: Clement challenged.

CF: Three ďthisĒs.

NP: Yes, three ďthisĒs, and quite close together too.

TH: Oh.

NP: So Clement, correct challenge, 40 seconds on leadership qualities starting now.

CF: I think if you look at the leadership qualities of the three good men who run our political parties, you would stop, not just hesitate or deviate, but actually stop...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TH: Ah well repetition of stop.

NP: Of course, right. So you have 27 seconds, leadership qualities Tony starting now.

TH: I think that Clement has great leadership qualities...

BUZZ

NP: Clement challenged. Yes Clement?

CF: I agree.

LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: Clement is very clever at getting bonus points. Your round of applause there endorsed that they enjoyed what you said Clement. A bonus point for that, but Tony was interrupted, so he keeps the subject, leadership qualities and you have still 23 seconds Tony starting now.

TH: But heíll be disappointed when I go on to say ďso does Nicholas ParsonsĒ! And I can tell you why I know this, because at the beginning of the show our great great man...

BUZZ

GROANS FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: I hope that groan was for me! So, ah Graham you challenged first.

GN: Repetition of the great.

NP: Of the great yes.

GN: Yes.

NP: And 10 seconds Graham, you tell us something about leadership qualities starting now.

GN: I think the quality a leader requires is an attractive back of head. Why else would you follow anyone? They must look well groomed and beautiful from the...

WHISTLE

NP: So Graham Norton was then speaking as the whistle went, and gained that extra point.

GN: Woo!

NP: Heís now equal with Tony Hawks in second place, theyíre both one point behind Clement Freud and Ross Noble who are both in the lead. And Graham itís also your turn to begin, the subject is facelifts. Tell us something about facelifts in Just A Minute starting now.

GN: I think facelifts are wonderful things. For instance, how else could Joan Rivers have achieved the look of a baboon skull with a wig on top of it? It may be expensive, but itís easier than being in a house fire, thatís the way I look at it!

BUZZ

NP: (laughing) Ross challenged.

RN: I thought there was a slight hesitation there, just a slight...

NP: No, there was a slight, but it wasnít enough to be a hesitation...

GN: Wasnít it?

NP: ... within Just A Minute... No, no!

RN: I think even Graham, if he was being honest...

NP: No, no, no, he kept going sufficiently well not to be penalised. And you have another point Graham, and you have 44 seconds on facelifts starting now.

GN: Facelifts are intriguing but quite terrifying. I think I will eventually have one. I, I quite like...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TH: Was there a slight hesitation there?

NP: Well he said have have.

GN: Yeah yeah I think I did.

TH: I, I, I.

NP: Yes I call that either hesitation or repetition of have.

CF: And a deviation.

NP: Whatís that?

CF: And deviation, heíll probably have more than one!

NP: Come on Just A Minute and find out who your friends are! Tony, 36 seconds on facelifts starting now.

TH: If you need to get your face to the ninth floor and you donít fancy the stairs, the best thing is to use the face-lift. You get in, press the button, and it will take you there beautifully. I do it whenever I am in a building and need to do such a thing. I have had a facelift myself, Iím really a hundred and four years old...

BUZZ

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: I was just thinking: sue!

NP: Whatís your challenge Graham?

GN: Sorry, it was just me chatting! No, on you go Tony. If youíre happy, you paid for it! Go on!

NP: You havenít a challenge within the rules of Just A Minute?

GN: Oh do I? Ah deviation.

NP: Why?

GN: From good sense!

NP: If I gave a penalty against good sense that went on in Just A Minute every time, I donít think weíd ever get anywhere. Tony, no, you werenít deviating enough, and 18 seconds, facelifts with you starting now.

TH: Iím actually an extremely ancient figure. Although when you see me sat before you in the audience, they canít at home listening on the radio, poor souls! I am not as young as I used to be is something people tend to say, but that makes no...

BUZZ

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: Oh now this is nonsense!

NP: Heís talking not only rubbish...

GN: Deviation from something!

NP: It was deviation from sense, yes. Graham you got in with two seconds to go on facelifts starting now.

GN: I am 13 years old but thanks to a combination of...

WHISTLE

NP: So Graham Norton was again speaking as the whistle went, gained that extra point. Heís now increased his lead over Tony Hawks. And the other two, Clement Freud and Ross Noble. And Clement itís your turn to begin, the subject is now nostalgia. Tell us something about nostalgia in 60 seconds if you can starting now.

CF: (very very slowly) I have such very fond memories of neuralgia. Thinking back, my youth was replete with diseases that took one to Harley Street, Wimpole and Queen Anne. Many doctors, surgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists, and skin care folk had my custom.

BUZZ

NP: Ross you challenged.

RN: It was hesitation, but I was so hypnotised by what was going on. It was almost like my finger wouldnít press!

NP: I know!

RN: But there was a...

NP: Itís amazing and the audience were as well.

RN: Yeah.

NP: And I think the listeners were, and theyíre going to be writing in about that.

RN: I think people will just be crashing their cars!

NP: Right, hesitation ah Ross, nostalgiaís with you, 36 seconds starting now.

RN: People often like to take a trip down Memory Lane, but unfortunately I knew a bloke that lived there and he wasnít very happy! The traffic was appalling! They had to introduce special calming measures, there was so many old people going along that particular byway. It was terrible, terrible... oh!

BUZZ

SHOUTS OF ďAWWWĒ FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: Oh! You see what happens? You get the audience with you, and they want you to continue and they clap. But Tony you got in first, right, hesitation?

TH: Ah yes.

NP: Seventeen seconds, nostalgia with you Tony starting now.

TH: I read a hilarious sign the other day when I was in this office saying ďnostalgia isnít what it used to beĒ. I fell about laughing, such was the amusement incurred by this said piece of writing. Nostalgia of course is...

WHISTLE

NP: So Tony Hawks speaking as the whistle went has now moved forward, and heís equal with Graham Norton in the lead, just two points ahead of the other two. And Tony itís your turn to begin, the subject is examinations. Tell us something about that subject in this game starting now.

TH: Iíve never understood why they put discuss in exam questions when youíre not allowed to! I actually turned to the person next to me during the examination, and did just that. And the man sent me out, saying ďHawks, youíre not supposed to be chattingĒ. Well it was very unfair indeed. I donít understand why in this country weíre so obsessed with examinations...

BUZZ

NP: Ross Noble challenged.

RN: Repetition of ďI donít understandĒ.

NP: Yes thatís right, you did say that before, right. So Ross, well listened, youíve got in with 37 seconds on examinations starting now.

RN: A popular examination is the cat scan. Now donít be confused. This isnít picking up a feline, and going (makes musical note sound) blip like that. Oh no, that can be very very wrong especially...

BUZZ

NP: Ah...

RN: Very very.

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: Oh Iím sorry, but it was very very.

NP: Very very wrong, well listened.

RN: You got me bang to rights, Holmes!

NP: Ah Graham, 26 seconds for you to tell us something about examinations starting now.

GN: The worst sort of examinations are of the medical variety. I recently did a voiceover for a biscuit and had to go for a full examination...

BUZZ

NP: Ah Tony challenged.

TH: How much was this biscuit paying you?

LAUGHTER FROM GN AND THE AUDIENCE

GN: Peanuts!

NP: Give Tony a bonus point, because the audience enjoyed his interruption. But Graham gets a point for being interrupted and he still has examinations and he has 14 seconds to continue starting now.

GN: In Ireland there are two main examinations. One is called the Intermeeeediiiiate Certificate! This examination proves that you are somewhere in the middle. You havenít started, you havenít finished. But...

WHISTLE

NP: I thought that was the longest elongation of a word without hesitating Iíve ever heard in Just A Minute. And your face expressed it all. But you...

RN: Is this a new rule? Hesitation, deviation, elongation?

LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

RN: Just to spice it up!

NP: You mean that you can challenge for elongation?

RN: Yeah.

NP: It could happen, but I donít think weíll institute it now. Itís going to be too difficult. Um...

TH: Iím up for it!

NP: Well, no, I think...

TH: Come on! What the hell! Letís live life! Letís, come on, itís been running 37 years! When was the last change?

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM RN, GN AND THE AUDIENCE

TH: Letís introduce elongation! Whoís with me?

SHOUTS OF ďYESĒ FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: The last change...

GN: Can I vote against?

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM NP AND THE AUDIENCE

NP: The last change came when ah you used to have deviation from the subject when this show first started many years ago, and now it just says deviation.

TH: Ah.

NP: So youíve got all kinds of scope to be inventive and creative...

TH: How wrong I was then!

NP: Right, ah, and nearly everybody at some time has indulged in elongation. So ah...

GN: We all experiment!

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: Iím talking about verbal elongation! Where do this audience come from? Ah oh yes Graham, you were speaking as the whistle went...

GN: Was I?

NP: ... gained an extra point, yes youíve moved forward. Youíre in the lead, just two points ahead of Tony Hawks, and four ahead of Ross Noble and Clement Freud...

GN: What, Iím in the lead?

NP: Youíre in the lead!

GN: No! And you say nothingís changed in 37 years?

NP: You are in the lead, keep it up. Right, Ross itís your turn...

LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

GN: Repetition of elongation!

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE FROM THE AUDIENCE

NP: I think weíll move on rapidly before we get completely bogged down! Right um Ross itís your turn to begin, the subject is shaving, 60 seconds as usual starting now.

RN: Shaving is something you have to do very carefully, especially when youíre shaving your pets, I find. I once had a cat which I didnít like. I donít know why I bought the thing in the first place. I was so angry at the fact that I had this creature, I went and got myself a lovely razor, and a bit of foam, and I shaved him up so that he looked like a completely different creature. In fact a tiny little panda...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TH: Ah repetition of creature.

NP: Yeah.

RN: Fair enough!

NP: Iím glad you got in there, I didnít like the way it was going at all! It was... Iím sure we were going to get...

RN: Weíve all shaved our pets! Come on!

NP: Our pets of the human kind, but not of the ah, the ah...

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE

GN: That, that opened a window we wished had stayed shut!

NP: You have to shave under your arms, a lot of people do that! Right, Tony...

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM GN, RN AND THE AUDIENCE

NP: Hysteria has taken over the panel and the chairman is collapsing! Right, 38 seconds for you on shaving Tony starting now.

TH: Clement probably has to shave more than me because the hair on his head appears to grow inwards and come out on his chin! And this doesnít happen to me...

BUZZ

NP: Clement challenged.

CF: Hesitation.

NP: Yes he did, Clement youíve got in with 28 seconds on shaving starting now.

CF: Monsieur Ving from Provence who was a very good chef, came to me and said ďwhat shall I do, now that I have come to England?Ē And I suggested he start a restaurant called Chez Ving. Where he could serve the most delicious French foods to anyone who so desired. His speciality...

BUZZ

NP: Ross has challenged you for some reason.

RN: Ah repetition of French.

NP: Yes thatís right, you did say French restaurant, and you mentioned this Frenchman who came to the, England.

CF: Yeah.

NP: You, you look surprised.

CF: No.

NP: No, no, no, itís... Ross you had a correct challenge, nine seconds, shaving starting now.

RN: I went to a French restaurant once, and was served badger, a frothy creature. Thatís right, it was the most bizarre dish...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TH: He said creature again!

RN: Iím actually being sponsored!

NP: Tony, another creature, another point to you, and three seconds on shaving starting now.

TH: I enjoy getting up in the morning and shaving in the bathroom...

WHISTLE

NP: So Tony Hawks speaking as the whistle went, with other points in the round, has now moved forward. Heís gone one ahead of our previous leader, Graham Norton, and then Ross Noble and Clement Freud in that order. And Clement itís your turn to begin, the subject here is quite a long one actually. My advice to the person sitting next to me. Sixty seconds as always is available and you start now.

CF: I donít actually have any advice...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged.

RN: Well I think thatís self-explanatory, that, isnít it? Iíll have the subject then!

NP: Oh give Ross a bonus point for that. And Clement you were interrupted so you keep the subject, you have a point of course and you have my advice to the person sitting next to me, 58 seconds starting now.

CF: My advice to the person sitting next to me would be exactly the same...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged again.

RN: Deviation, he said before he didnít have any advice, and now he says he does! You canít have it both ways!

NP: That was justified Ross, you have 53 seconds, my advice to the person sitting next to me, starting now.

RN: The advice Iíd give to the person sitting next to me is try not to be so flamboyant! Stop wearing those crazy costumes, and running over town making those camp suggestions!

BUZZ

RN: And Nicholas just wonít listen!

LOUD LAUGHTER FROM TH, GN, NP AND THE AUDIENCE

NP: Iíll show you how fair I am! Right, because he had a wonderful twist there, they all thought you were talking about Graham. Give him a bonus point...

GN: Did they?

NP: And Tony, but you challenged Tony?

TH: Well believe it or not Nicholas, and you probably wonít, um, I was going to ruin his joke, I was going to buzz in and say ďstop talking about NicholasĒ, you see. So ah, he got in there first...

NP: Great comic minds think alike!

TH: Yes, exactly!

NP: But he was in the flow, so he got in first.

TH: He got the laugh, and the point. I lose all round!

GN: Repetition of joke!

NP: So he was interrupted as well, so he gets another point for that, and he keeps the subject, and 44 seconds, my advice to the person sitting next to me starting now.

RN: I would give advice to the person sitting next to me...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

RN: Ah repetition of, oh, God, itís on the title again! Iíve given him another point!

GN: Is, is Ross paying you to interrupt him this often?

NP: Ross, 42 seconds on the subject starting now.

RN: I think that the advice that I would give to the person...

BUZZ

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: Sorry, my mistake!

NP: What is the...

GN: I thought he was hesitating but no, he wasnít!

RN: Iím going all the way on this one!

NP: Forty seconds Ross on the subject starting now.

RN: The advice that I would give to the...

BUZZ

CF: Repetition of would.

NP: Yes. thatís not on the, that is not on the card. The subject is my advice to the person sitting next to me. Thatís on the card, and you said ďthe advice that I would giveĒ twice! So Clement youíve got in on the subject, 38 seconds starting now.

CF: The advice I would give to the person sitting next to me, is that as I have no chance of winning this game, they should buzz in quickly...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged.

RN: He said ďbuzzĒ, I did!

LAUGHTER FROM CF AND THE AUDIENCE

RN: But Iím not sitting next to him!

GN: But youíre not sitting next to him!

RN: But if I move my chair, can I have a point?

NP: No! Clement you were interrupted, you have a point for that, you have the subject still, my advice to the person sitting next to me, 30 seconds starting now.

CF: Ross Noble, Ross Noble, Ross Noble...

BUZZ

NP: Tony Hawks.

CF: Awww!

TH: Repetition of Graham Norton! No, repetition of Ross Noble.

NP: I give you Ross Noble. Tony, youíve got the subject, 28 seconds, my advice to the person sitting next to me starting now.

TH: My advice to the person sitting next to me is to take out his wallet and pass 250 pounds cash to the person on his right. This would please me, not be particularly entertaining...

BUZZ

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: Oh now... Iíve turned into a points charity down the end! No, I thought he said ďmeĒ twice, but it was ďbeĒ the second time.

TH: Be, yes.

NP: And ďmeĒ is on the card anyway.

GN: What is? What?

NP: The person sitting next to me.

GN: All right, clever clogs!

NP: Itís my job to point these things out!

GN: I was looking stupid enough already, no need to rub it in!

NP: Ah 15 seconds Tony, with you on the subject starting now.

TH: My advice to the person sitting next to me is to come out with me after the show and weíll go clubbing. What a night! Clement and me, picking up girls, like itís nobodyís business. I want to see him boogie the night away! Let...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged.

RN: Was that repetition of night?

NP: Yes.

RN: What a night it would be.

NP: A night on the town.

TH: Ah!

NP: Yes, well listened Ross, youíve got may advice to the person sitting next to me, two seconds starting now.

RN: My advice to the person sitting next...

WHISTLE

NP: So Ross is getting carried away with his subject, and has got many points including one for speaking as the whistle went. Heís now got a good lead over Tony Hawks, and then Graham Norton and Clement Freud in that order. And Tony itís your turn to begin, the subject now is Henry the Eighth. Tell us something about that amazing monarch in this game starting now.

TH: There are not many similarities between Henry the Eighth and me. He had six wives, Iíve had hardly any! He had a huge palace in Hampton Court, Iíve got a modest property in Wimbledon. He was fat, Iím thin. And the differences go on! He split with Rome, Iíve just had a tiff with Milton Keynes. Thatís all it is! Henry the Eighth was in many ways our finest King. He did do some marvellous things, Iím not going to list them all now because I donít want to embarrass you with my knowledge. But what I will do is tell you...

BUZZ

NP: Graham challenged.

GN: Was there a sort of hesitation there? I think...

NP: A sort of hesitation, yes Graham. So the benefit of the doubt to you on this occasion, 27 seconds, Henry the Eighth with you starting now.

GN: What sort of dreary cut-price baby name book does the Royal Family have? That they must continually name their children the same thing, over and that thing again. Henry the...

BUZZ

NP: Ross challenged.

RN: Repetition of thing.

NP: Yes there were two things.

GN: Did I?

NP: Yes.

RN: And there was a slight elongation as well, just...

GN: Leave it! Leave it!

RN: Just a slight, slight elongation.

NP: We havenít instituted that yet, Ross.

RN: Oh come on! You know you want to!

NP: Repetition, 13 seconds, Henry the Eighth with you Ross starting now.

RN: Henry the Eighth is often pictured with chicken legs, and by this I mean standing there holding one that he is about to eat, I donít mean that his particular limbs are that of that poultry creature...

BUZZ

NP: Tony challenged.

TH: ďBy this I meanĒ, and then he said ďI donít meanĒ. So repetition of mean.

NP: By this I mean, I donít mean.

RN: Thatís just mean!

NP: Tony, three seconds on Henry the Eighth starting now.

TH: (singing) Iím Henry the Eighth, I am, Henry the Eighth I am...

WHISTLE

NP: Oh dear! Right so weíre moving into the last round. Iíll give you the situation as we do so. Ah the contributions have been great all round, but the points are slightly different. Ross Noble is still in the lead, heís two ahead of Tony Hawks, and then a few ahead of Graham Norton and Clement Freud. And Ross itís your turn to begin and the subject for this last round is how to treat pregnant ladies, 60 seconds starting now.

RN: How to treat pregnant ladies, well, you could always take them out and buy them some big pants. Thatís what they like, yes. There you go, love, dive in, help yourself to the largest elasticated wear that you could possibly muster! But try not to look like a clown, thatís very important. How many times have I made that mistake? Bought a beautiful maternity dress, only to realise they they are in fact hooped pantaloons, that should be given to Coco and his hilarious mates from the circus. Oh those poor pregnant ladies as they squirt their flowers at each other, their hats flying off their head as they try and wallpaper the babyís room, hitting each other with planks in the face, falling over as everyone rolls around, confetti everywhere! A tiny little car comes in, honking and exploding, as the wheels fly off, right, left and centre. Who would have thought it, that Mothercare would have to provide a special service that would be important...

WHISTLE

NP: And Ross Noble brought it to a finish with a flourish! The whole 60 seconds without being interrupted, you get a point for speaking as the whistle went, a bonus point for not being interrupted. You were already in the lead, and actually even if you werenít in the lead, Iíd have given you another point as well, because the audience applause at the end was so good. But it doesnít make any difference to the final result. Clement Freud who normally does so well, but he was rather overshadowed and pushed down to a very surprising fourth place. But thatís what happens, itís the contribution thatís more important than the points anyway as I always say. Graham Norton was in the lead for a long time and then suddenly he eclipsed himself and finished up in third place. Tony Hawks was in second place. He was four points behind our leader who was Ross Noble, and Ross, I think we will have a round of applause for your contribution! It only remains for me to say thank you to these four talented players of the game, Graham Norton, Ross Noble, Tony Hawks and Clement Freud. I thank Janet Staplehurst, for helping with the score, and blowing her whistle after the 60 seconds expired. We thank our producer, Claire Jones. And also we are indebted to Ian Messiter who created this amazing game. We are grateful to this lovely audience who have stood the test of time, come from all corner of London to cheer us on our way in the Drill Hall here. From our audience, from our panel, and from me Nicholas Parsons, hope youíve enjoyed it but tune in the next time we play Just A Minute!
