I’ve just remembered that we’re now three episodes into the latest series of Just A Minute and I haven’t blogged or recommended it once. Everyone in Britain absolutely must give it a listen. Fantastic light hearted entertainment and one of the longest running radio series so it has to be doing something right. Built around the deceivingly simply challenge of asking guests to speak for just one minute without hesitating (pausing or stumbling over words), repeating a word or deviation (discussing a subject which they’ve not been asked to speak on) it’s amazing how much amusement can be gained. Particularly enjoyed the third episode of this series: Tony Hawks and Paul Merton are both very good guests and Ross Noble’s humour actually words when he is constrained from deviating!
