Just a Minute
Mood:  special
Now Playing: at listening to the radio...
Topic: miscellaneous

DOES ANYONE KNOW & LIKE "JUST A MINUTE"?

It's a radio panel game. A topic is announced. One selected player must speak on said topic for one minute without hesitation-deviation-repetition.

Which is far easier said than done.

(Repetition, for example, means repeating any word more unusual than that/which/and/I etc...)

If you want to hear it, you can click http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/comedy/justaminute.shtml and select Listen Again. (Just a Minute, BTW, = not to be confused with Jest a Minute.)

I listen every week. There's probably some good plays there too, if you take a look. (They're not all full of middle class people sighing... honest.)

(BTW does anyone remember Just a Minute back in the early 80s with Kenneth Williams on board?... Those were the days...)

Down the Line is another one that's good. It's a "unique" phone-in prog that must be heard to be believed, believe me... http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/comedy/downtheline.shtml. This one attracted loads of complaints on its 1st airing from listeners who'd grabbed the wrong end of the stick!

One more — then I really shall go — is the World Service magazine programme Outlook (http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/programmes/outlook.shtml). This one's not comedy but I like it. It's often playing when I'm wide awake and Mousey's out for a 3am ramble...

Right. I'm off!
