NOTE: Susie Best's first appearance blowing the whistle.

NICHOLAS PARSONS: Welcome to Just A Minute!


NP: Thank you, thank you, hello, my name is Nicholas Parsons. And as the Minute Waltz fades away once more it is my tremendous pleasure to welcome our many listeners, not only in this country, but throughout the world. But also to welcome to the programme four attractive and talented players of this game. I mean who can resist the spontaneous humour and brilliant repartee of Paul Merton? Who can resist the charm and personality of Liza Tarbuck? Who can resist the wit and clever annunciations and observations of Kit Hesketh-Harvey? And who can resist the engaging personality of that fine actor, Charles Collingwood? Would you 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 Susie Best, who is going to help me keep the score, and she will blow a whistle when the 60 seconds are up. And this particular edition of Just A Minute is coming from the City Varieties, that wonderful theatre in the heart of that fine city of Leeds. And as you can hear we have a fine tuned up Yorkshire audience in front of us ready to cheer us on our way. Let's begin the show with Paul Merton, and who better? Oh Paul, a very apt subject to start with, music hall. Because this theatre is one of the most famous music hall theatres in the country and it is still going strong. The subject is music hall, Paul and you start now.

PAUL MERTON: Well, as Nicholas just said, the City Varieties, Leeds is one of the oldest theatres in the country. If you look back through the record books you will see that Charlie Chaplin appeared here in 1896 with an act called the Eight Lancaster... oh!


PM: Sorry about that!

NP: Liza Tarbuck you challenged.

LIZA TARBUCK: It's stumbling, wasn't it.

NP: Yes.

LT: I leapt in.

NP: So you leapt in and we call that hesitation right...

LT: Hesitation of course.

NP: So Liza, you have a point for a correct challenge, you take over the subject of music hall and there are 47 seconds available starting now.

LT: When I was young, I made my name by appearing in various music hall acts. The first one was me in a barrel as a strong man. I'd lie very low in the barrel and I...


NP: Kit has challenged.

KIT HESKETH-HARVEY: Very sorry, barrel.

LT: Thank the Lord!

NP: You repeated your barrel, you had too much of a barrel there, right.

KHH: Roll out those barrels!

NP: So we're going to hear from three of them in this first round on the subject of music hall...


NP: Perhaps I should explain to our listeners that friesance of laughter that occurred then. Because only three of them are here at the moment! Charles Collingwood, who works in another show on Radio Four called The Archers, has left his production in Birmingham to come up here to Leeds. And unfortunately the traffic is so bad, he is on his way. We hope that he'll be here before we finish! But Kit you had a correct challenge, you have 36 seconds, tell us something about music hall starting now.

KHH: I was overjoyed to discover I had an ancestress who worked this very hall. She was called Kitty Brewster, and divinely taught Queen Victoria to play the ukulele! This is true! It's a glorious image if you sit and think of them at Osborne House strumming away together. She had a troupe of six girls, and was caught behind enemy lines before the Great War. And using only her instruments and her wiles, managed to make it back to her heroine's welcome here in these British shores. And what joy and rapture there was. I'm not quite sure what her wiles were but they...



NP: Yes you deserved that round of applause. But Paul got in, I know what it was, on the repetition of...

PM: Repetition of wiles.

NP: Of wiles yes and there are six seconds Paul, on music hall with you again starting now.

PM: The Good Old Days was a television programme transmitted from this very theatre. And Leonard Sachs, the chairman, used to stand up and say "where's Charles Collingwood?"


NP: In this game whoever is speaking when the whistle goes gains an extra point. On this occasion it was Paul Merton, so he's got that extra one. And oh at the end of the round, let me tell you, well, you can imagine what the situation is. Paul's got two and the other two have got one each, so that's fine. Um...

KHH: What about Charles?

NP: Charles Collingwood... Charles Collingwood is yet to score. He's, he's due to start the next round as well. Somebody in the front said hesitation! Ah...

PM: Should we not, should we not just do, give Charles his subject and see what happens?

NP: All right, all right Paul, very good idea, right! So Charles Collingwood, would you take the next round! And Charles the subject is a slippery slope. Would you talk for 60 seconds on that subject starting now.


NP: Kit you challenged.

KHH: Repetition!

NP: Of what?

KHH: Because he didn't say anything last time!

NP: He hasn't had a chance yet!

PM: I think that was a harsh challenge Nicholas, I think we should give Charles another go!

NP: Yes! I think so!

KHH: Give him a point! Give the man a point!

NP: No, no, I know. That wasn't, wasn't a repetition definitely. So Charles there are, only one second to go, Charles there are still 59 seconds available on a slippery slope starting now.


NP: Ah Liza you challenged.

LT: Deviation.

NP: Why?

LT: He's not paying attention!

NP: You can carry on in this game and not pay attention, it doesn't matter. He's got another point, Charles has got another point, and er one for the first challenge, two incorrect challenges so far. Charles Collingwood, a slippery slope, still with you and 57 seconds starting now.



NP: Ah Paul you challenged?

PM: Repetition of zoological gardens. No, I'm sorry, I panicked!

NP: I don't know why, you've all been playing the game for a long time, you could have had him for hesitation. But nobody's bothered...

LT: Oh!

KHH: Oh of course! How stupid!

PM: Well who knows, he might, he might make the same mistake!

NP: That's right, so that's another point to Charles, because that's an incorrect challenge, 56 seconds still with you Charles, a slippery slope starting now.


NP: Yes Liza?

LT: Hesitation.

NP: Hesitation yes! So Liza you have a correct challenge and you've got the subject of a slippery slope with you and there are 56 seconds starting now.

LT: The slipperiest slope I've ever been on was a skiing ridge in Austria in the town of Obergurgle. Let me tell you straight away I'm not very good at skiing. I started life at the back of the row of skiers and then I ended up at the front, at a precipice at one point which was quite worrying. I did have tonsillitis and I was always much better after two glasses of gluvine, but then isn't everybody? I'd get down to the ski lodge about one o'clock, meet my mum and my brother, who was calling himself rather wittily a snow cat, and mock him for hours and... a long time...


LT: Where does it come from?

NP: It's an impossible game! So Kit what was your challenge.

KHH: Well there was hesitation I think.

LT: Yes.

NP: It was hesitation because she couldn't resist saying hours again. So Kit you've got in, another point to you, slippery slope's with you, 22 seconds starting now.

KHH: The most slippery slope is the vitiginous rake here on the stage at the City Varieties Leeds. But I once went down the flumes at Centre Parks in Thetford which was like having a high colonic irrigation. Just astonishing! By the time I got to the bottom in a tangle of naked limbs with people from Dagenham, I was so cleansed and purified, I rejoiced at the thrill of it all... Oh!


NP: Paul you challenged.

PM: Ah hesitation.

NP: Hesitation yes. And you've got in with one second to go...

KHH: Oh you pig!

NP: Oh, after the way he went so magnificently on his slippery slope. One second on slippery slope, Paul starting now.

PM: The slippery slope...


NP: Paul Merton got the point for speaking then as the whistle went and he's moved forward. And Kit it's your turn to begin, the subject is my favourite pudding. That's a lovely subject, talk on it, 60 seconds if you can starting now.

KHH: What can I say here in the City Varieties Leeds but that my favourite pudding is of course Yorkshire! What a prince of dishes that is! Curiously enough there was a competition held in this very city to try and find who could make the best of these puddings. It was won by a Chinaman pleasingly called Mister Tin. And his secret recipe was supposed to involve die-lick sauce. That turned out to be a Cantonese joke. But what he did was to put the flour and the salt into the eggs, rather than the other way round, which more conventionally is used, which you make a... well in the... (starts giggling)


NP: Liza you challenged.

LT: Do you know what? It was repetition of city. Excuse me, who's this?

KHH: No!


NP: Yes!

LT: Hello, love! You're doing very well! You're second!

CHARLES COLLINGWOOD: Oh I'm up to my knees in slurry!

NP: It's all right Charles, you made a magnificent entrance, but please don't milk it! Right someone challenged on...

LT: I challenged...

KHH: On cities.

LT: ... for repetition of city.

NP: Yes.

KHH: I think you're right.

LT: Although it was hesitation.

NP: Well...

LT: Does that mean I get two points?

NP: No darling, you only get one. Sorry.

LT: Oh!

NP: You only have one hesitation. Anyway you've got one point for a correct challenge, and you take over, it's my favourite pudding, by the way Charles, 26 seconds on my favourite pudding starting now.

LT: I'm a savouries girl at the end of the day. However occasionally I like two scoops of ice cream. I'll go one chocolate, and uno vanilla, if you're talking in Spain. Because that is where I would normally have my .... pudding...


LT: Oh!

NP: Kit has challenged.

LT: Oh I mean well.

KHH: I'm sorry, she hesitated as well.

LT: I know.

KHH: It was actually repetition of the two scoops but I think that's a bit...

NP: I know, she got out of it so well with her Italiano...

LT: Two scoops.

NP: But Kit, you got in with a hesitation, 13 seconds available, another point to you of course, my favourite pudding starting now.

KHH: And it billows up like a cushion, crisp and golden, and in you tuck. You can put maple syrup into it...


NP: Paul challenged.

PM: Are cushions normally crisp and golden?

KHH: Have you seen Nicholas's?

PM: I think, I think it's deviation, cushions are never crisp...

NP: No...

PM: ... by nature, they're soft and giving and yielding.

NP: That's right yes.

PM: They're never crisp. You've never sat on a crisp cushion, have you Nicholas?

NP: I have...

PM: I bet you have and all!

NP: I have! But I soon shot up because I knew it wasn't a proper cushion.

PM: Exactly!

NP: They may look crisp and golden, but they are soft and giving as you said Paul.

PM: Indeed.

NP: So you have a correct challenge of deviation, and you have six seconds on my favourite pudding starting now.

PM: Undoubtedly the best pudding I ever ate was at the Festival of Britain in 1951...


NP: So at the end of that round Paul again was speaking as the whistle went, and has increased his lead over the others. But it's very interesting. Charles Collingwood, who is yet to speak, is still in second place. Right Liza it's your turn to begin...

CC: Right I'm going home again!

NP: Liza the subject now is daytime television, you have 60 seconds as usual starting now.

LT: As a rule, daytime television goes straight through from 6AM in the morning till 6AM the following... morning...


LT: That slippery old trap!

NP: Paul you challenged.

PM: Repetition of 6AM.

LT: You're absolutely right.

NP: Six anyway. Paul you've got in with 54 seconds to go on daytime television starting now.

PM: When I was growing up, there wasn't much daytime television. Of course you have a great deal of it now. They start as Liza said, round about the early hours of the morning. And daytime television, by definition, I suppose, finishes when it gets dark although the actual medium continues. But it's all a load of rubbish isn't it. I've painted my house blue, you've... done yours red...


NP: Kit you challenged.

KHH: Sorry hesitation.

NP: I would call that a slight hesitation, but enough to give you the subject.

KHH: Very cruel, I'm sorry.

PM: Fair point.

NP: No no. Thirty-five seconds on daytime television Kit, 35 seconds starting now.

KHH: Daytime television...


PM: Oh I thought there was a hesitation there!

NP: Kit...

KHH: You...

NP: You're playing the game with great panache Paul! But it was incorrect and Kit's got another point, 34 and a half seconds, daytime television starting now.

KHH: I don't think daytime television is in the least boring. When you see fragrant Hannah Gordon wafting through her water-colour challenge. Or even the craggy old majestic magnificence that is Michael Parkinson, a Yorkshireman, on his antiques programme, which I used to share with the divine Penny Smith, irresistibly sexy and sensual, as we judged old pieces handed to us by Eric Knowles. Going For A Snog, I hoped to call it, but it never got that far. There's also Call My Bluff with ripping little Sandi Toksvig, punching Alan Coren in the kneecaps. And ah...


NP: So Kit Hesketh-Harvey making the subject interesting, and going until the whistle went, gained an extra point. And at the end of that round, he not only got the extra point, but he is only one behind our leader Paul Merton. Charles, your turn to legitimately start. The subject is bookworm starting now.

CC: The only time I could legitimately be called a bookworm is when I'm on holiday and I have time to lie by the side of that mezzanine pool, with a pile of gorgeous books that I have meant to read for many a year but because of a busy life...


NP: Kit has challenged.

KHH: We're having trouble over here with mezzanine pool. Isn't that deviation? I mean wouldn't the whole thing just sort of flow down the stairs?

NP: You have another point Kit, and you have 46 seconds on bookworm starting now.

KHH: There's a famous brain teaser about a bookworm. You have to imagine it chomping through three thousand page encyclopaedias on a shelf from A to Z. How many pages does it eat? Oh bother!


NP: Liza challenged.

LT: Pages.

NP: No, it was page the first time.

KHH: Oh was it?

NP: Yes.

KHH: Oh you are alert Nicholas, aren't you?

NP: It's my job!

LT: You surprised me then, Mister Parsons!

NP: So it was a singular then a plural.

KHH: I think she's coming on to you, Nicholas!

NP: Well with her new dark hair, I'm absolutely tempted! The um, ah, an incorrect challenge so another point to you Kit, and how many seconds, 35 seconds on bookworm starting now.

KHH: From A to Z, how many does...


NP: Paul challenged.

PM: We had from A to Z.

KHH: I'm sorry, I was picking up where I left off.

NP: So now you have it Paul, and 34 seconds, bookworm starting now.

PM: Well it's a derogatory term but it shouldn't be. Because to read books is the path to a good education. Those variety acts used to fill this theatre but in the 1950s. They didn't read books but they would have done, if they'd had the opportunity...


NP: Charles challenged.

CC: Two reads.

NP: Yes you read books, yes read, they would read if they could...

KHH: Oh it's tricky when the subject is bookworm, isn't it, yes yes.

LT: That's right!

NP: Twenty-two seconds with you Charles...

KHH: Clever Nicholas.

NP: .... or back with you, bookworm starting now.

CC: Lying on a sandy...


NP: Paul challenged.

CC: Don't you...

PM: That was hesitation.

CC: Don't be so silly Paul!

PM: Yes absolutely! You could have parked a bus in that! Or driven, or driven from Birmingham!

CC: How could you! A man of impeccable timing...

NP: He's only trying to get back at you for the unsporting challenge. But I'm always fair, it wasn't hesitation. So Charles you've got another point, you have the subject, 21 seconds, bookworm starting now.

CC: It takes a long time to read an enormous amount of books, and to become a bookworm. I'm glad I'm not married to a bookworm, otherwise nothing in the house would ever get done...


NP: Liza challenged.

LT: I had to come in on hesitation but also just for the sake of females everywhere!


NP: You do, yes. And you have nine seconds to tell us something about bookworm starting now.

LT: This summer I read for the first time Philip Pullman's trilogy about the little girl Lara and working in Oxford, roaming round the streets with her friend, walking through...


NP: So Liza Tarbuck was then speaking as the whistle went, and gained that extra point. And she's now, well, she's moved forward, but she's still in fourth place. But no, no, no, she's not very far behind the other three. Kit it's your turn to begin, curiosities, 60 seconds as usual starting now.

KHH: In the back streets of Norwich in Lowercote Lane, there's a curiosity shop. You can tell which it is by the dead cats on the doormat. You go inside and a voice says "I am!" Which is the shortest sentence in the English language. You say "what a funny smell". "It's the cockroaches, it's a curiosity, but they carry on living for nine days after they've had their heads chopped off." "What do you sell here?" "Windscreen wipers and laser jets, all invented by women, remarkably enough." "Can I have some lipstick please?" "No, because there's none left, they use up five times their height in a lifetime. Would you like a stuffed porcupine, the only mammal which kisses on the lips?" "You're barking mad," I said, "I must get out of here!" "Don't go..."


NP: Yes you went well there...

KHH: Oh it was, I was scared, I was scared...

NP: Paul challenged.

KHH: It came unglued.

PM: Yes you said something about a mammal, the only mammal that kisses on the lips. Well humans kiss on the lips, don't they? They're mammals!

KHH: I suppose technically, if you want to do that sort of thing.

PM: And also, a very long advert for this shop in Norwich, which surely must be against the BBC's charter.

NP: Ah 12 seconds, curiosities with you Paul, starting now.

PM: The most curious shop I've ever been to is in Norwich where I actually own the establishment and I dress up as this old proprietor. And when Kit Hesketh-Harvey comes in, I give him a right load of old bollocks about a load of old rubbish, and he sits there and loves it...


NP: Yes, well that last point was well deserved, what a clever way, that's why he's so good at the game. He takes the other subject and twists it back on his previous tormentor. Right, you've now moved ahead, you're two ahead of the other two and three ahead of Liza. And Charles, your turn to begin, the subject, the Great Wall Of China. Sixty seconds as usual Charles starting now.

CC: I can only think of one thing more boring than having to go and look at the Great Wall of China. Than being the person who built it all those many years ago. The thought of standing with bricks in your hands, putting one solid slab on top of the other, year after year, watching the...


LT: Classic!

CC: It's been a very long day for me!

NP: It is! Oh no you did so well. You avoided saying one brick on top of the other...

CC: I know, and I was congratulating myself!

KHH: You relax and it all lets go, doesn't it.

NP: Paul right, the Great Wall of China, 42 seconds starting now.

PM: Apparently from the Great Wall of China, you can see the Moon! Isn't that an extraordinary fact! As Charles mentioned earlier, the Great Wall was built by, it's not actually finished yet, we're expecting it to be done in a couple of weeks time if they're anything like the builders I've had in the past. But a magnificent structure that it is! And when they constructed this marvellous...


NP: Um Charles.

PM: Structure, constructed.

CC: Con, con, con....

NP: No it was construct and constructed.

CC: I was too quick!

NP: I know.

CC: Sorry Paul.

NP: You were too slow earlier on in the show. But now ...

CC: Story of my life, Nicholas!

KHH: Your juices are now flowing!

NP: Your contribution's great, don't worry Charles.

LT: Fox-trot isn't it, quick, quick, slow!

NP: Paul, an incorrect challenge, 22 seconds still available on the Great Wall of China starting now.

PM: One of the great variety acts of the 19th century was the Great Wall Of China. It was very dull but comprehensive. The act would usually begin at about half past four in the morning, and would carry on till about several weeks later, as brick by solid slab was placed on top of one another, year after 12 months. It seemed like there was no end to it! What a magnificent achievement it was...


NP: Oh you're getting your money's worth in the City Varieties!

CC: He made me look a bit of a, I thought he made me look a bit of a fool towards the end there!

NP: Nobody could ever do that Charles.

CC: No I think he did.

NP: He's just shining...

CC: I'm on the edge here, I could just slip off again, you wouldn't notice.

NP: He's excelling himself as he often does and right. But with those extra points Paul got in that round and one for speaking as the whistle went, he's moved forward. He's now in a lead just ahead of Kit Hesketh-Harvey and then comes Charles Collingwood and Liza Tarbuck only a couple of points behind. I give you that situation because we're moving into the final round.

LT: Oh!

NP: Well I'll tell you what. Would you like us to come back again?


NP: I will fix that for you if I possibly can! Maybe the same audience will come and see us again, who knows! Right Liza would you take the last round, it's actually your turn as well. And the subject is, oh what a good one. God's own county!


NP: They recognise it in the front there. Everybody in the front row claps when they say anything. It's lovely! Liza, 60 seconds starting now.

LT: I had a good idea that God's own county might be up north. But to be quite honest with you, I thought for it the whole of Sunday, it was actually Kent. Then I moved through to Surrey. But in fact I've invented God's own country and it's called Big-grey-beard-shire! I don't know how to get there, I don't know how to get back, and I'm not allowed to buy a holiday home, because if I do the local children won't be allowed to stay in there and run the corner shop...


NP: Charles challenged.

CC: There were two alloweds.

NP: That's right, yes there were indeed yes.

LT: You're very strict, aren't you.

NP: Well done Charles yes. So Charles...

LT: That was going to be really good then as well!

CC: It was, it was fascinating!

NP: By the way I should point out, you were talking about God's own country, and the subject is God's own county.

LT: Was I?

NP: Yes.

LT: I just, do you know, I don't know what the hell I'm doing here today!

NP: Well we know because we just love having you here Liza. You're so lovely and charming!

LT: Uncle Nicholas!

NP: And you can... our secret's out. Right Charles, you had a correct challenge, you have 45 seconds, tell us something about God's own county starting now.

CC: I have to say that God's own county is Borsetshire, is it not? There's only one...


NP: Kit challenged.

KHH: It's not, no! You're labouring under a delusion. It doesn't really exist!

CC: Twenty-eight years I've been doing this!

KHH: It's a parallel universe, Charles!

NP: I'm sorry to have to tell you, it's all, it's all fiction Charles that you're doing!

CC: Is it really?

PM: But hang on a minute! He must have travelled from somewhere to get here.

CC: I did, I came from Ambridge!

PM: Yeah.

NP: Right.

CC: In God's own county. I'm rather cracking up!

NP: It's a difficult decision because in a way, you could say in his imagination, and in the world in which he lives in The Archers, it could be God's own county.

CC: Sure.

NP: So there is an argument for that as well...

PM: A lot of people think you're fictional, don't they.

NP: Yes. And that's why I stick to radio so... No, I've er, I give it away when I come on television, don't I. Right so I'm not going to allow it Charles...

KHH: Do you?

CC: Thank you.

KHH: Shall we try some and find out?

NP: Oh thank you audience, you're so lovely, I'm definitely coming back again! You're almost as good as when I did my one man show here actually, you were lovely then!

LT: Oh hello.

NP: Yes.

CC: It wasn't quite this full though, was it Nicholas?

PM: Does the, does the one man element refer to the stage or the auditorium?

NP: They're so mean to me, aren't they. And I take it in good grace. Because I know that audience know because many of them were here, and that's why you've come back again. I will get on it with if I possibly can

KHH: Because they've died!

NP: Charles you continue on God's own county, 41 seconds starting now.

CC: (in Hampshire accent) Well I come from Hampshire and that's my God's own county, I can tell you. Winchester and Dover, Southampton, Portsmouth, all places that mean everything to me. I support the county cricket team, fricken fricken frew.


CC: That was Hampshire, that was just a bit of Hampshire dialect.

NP: I know it was, yeah, but it was repetitious Hampshire dialect.

CC: Yes, it's also very sad.

NP: And we're very, it's very suspect too. I don't know about this fricken. So anyway...

CC: Fricken frew, no.

NP: Fricken frew. So Paul, repetition, you have 25 seconds on God's own county starting now.

PM: Lancashire! What a wonderful place...


PM: Why they should react, I don't quite understand. Is there a rivalry between the two counties?


NP: Charles you challenged.

CC: I'm sorry, I'm sorry...

PM: Is there a rivalry?

CC: I'm sorry, in here that has to be deviation!


NP: All I can say, in here it's courage! But Charles, a correct challenge, you've got another point, 18 seconds, God's own county starting now.

CC: If I lived in Yorkshire, I'm such a creep that I would say Yorkshire is God's own county...


NP: And Paul...

CC: Do you mean I can't repeat Yorkshire here?

NP: No, no, no, you can repeat Yorkshire here, you can repeat Yorkshire here but you can't repeat it in Just A Minute which you did. Paul got in first and 12 seconds on God's own county Paul starting now.

PM: When we think of the great achievements of Yorkshire over the centuries, we can't help but be awed by the magnificent that has been achieved. One only...


NP: Kit challenged.

KHH: The magnificent that has been achieved, was it?

NP: The magnificence that has been achieved.

KHH: Oh I thought it was magnificent. Sorry

PM: My pronunciation is...

KHH: I beg your pardon, diction dear. Fling it to the back of the upper circle, love here. Victor Spinetti said you have to put an E on the end of everything. Nicholas-ah Parsons -ah, Merton-ee.

NP: He's gone a bit haven't you.

KHH: I'm sorry, no, he trained me, The Boy I Love Is Up In The Gallery, I remember doing here with him.

NP: Right right! I don't know what he's talking about but let's go on with the game! Paul you had an incorrect challenge, you have another point, you're surging, your lead is surging forward as we come to the end with three seconds to go on God's own county starting now.

PM: Beer, puddings, women, they're all better in Yorkshire!


NP: So in suitable style Paul Merton brought this edition of Just A Minute to an end commenting on this place we're in here, the City Varieties in Leeds. And they have a wonderful true Yorkshire audience, and that will be our memories, lovely audiences in Yorkshire too! That deserved a better reaction! I think you know the final situation. Liza was only just in fourth place, one behind Kit Hesketh-Harvey. No, no, there's only one point between them all. Charles Collingwood one behind Kit Hesketh-Harvey. And a few points out in the lead was Paul Merton, so we say Paul, you are the winner this week! So it only remains for me to say thank you to these four delightful players of the game, Paul Merton, Kit Hesketh-Harvey, Liza Tarbuck, Charles Collingwood. I also thank Susie Best who for the first time and magnificently has helped me with the score, and blown her whistle with such panache. We thank our producer-director, that is Chris Neill. We are indebted to Ian Messiter who created this game. We are deeply indebted to this lovely Yorkshire audience here in the City Varieties in Leeds. From the audience, from me Nicholas Parsons, and our team good-bye! Tune in the next time we take to the air and we play Just A Minute!
