Book review: Welcome to Just A Minute

The book promises, ‘A celebration of Britain’s best-loved radio comedy’ and certainly provides it. Ever-present Nicholas Parsons takes the reader through the history of the show, starting with the development of the idea up to the present day. During this tour, notable players of the game are mentioned (some have even provided short passages about the game), facts are given and numerous transcripts are included; my personal favourite involved Clement Freud and Paul Merton on the subject of ‘Spam’. An excellent read for any fan of the wonderful radio show.
