Four specially selected episodes of the much-loved BBC Radio 4 panel game chaired by Nicholas Parsons, showcasing the talents of Sheila Hancock . 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. Sheila Hancock first appeared on the second ever show, and since then she has become one of the most popular and long-standing contestants. This collection presents four classic episodes featuring Sheila as she uses her warmth, wit, and ingenuity in the course of the game. With episodes taken from the 1970s, 1980s, and 2000s, she displays her talent for wordplay and ear for a good anecdote as she tackles subjects as diverse as Uncle Tom Cobley, Excuses, The Greatest Woman Who Ever Lived, and Things You Should Never Do On A Train. In addition, there is strong participation from other regular panelists: Kenneth Williams, Peter Jones, Derek Nimmo, Clement Freud, Kit Hesketh-Harvey, and Paul Merton. Asalways, Nicholas Parsons is the capable, unflappable chairman of the game. The selected episodes were broadcast on August 6, 1973; March 16, 1977; February 12, 1980; and July 28, 2003.
