Just a Minute is a BBC Radio 4 radio comedy panel game, hosted by Sue Perkins since 2021. For more than fifty years, the programme was hosted by Nicholas Parsons. Just a Minute was first transmitted on Radio 4 on 22 December 1967. The object of the game is for panellists to talk for sixty seconds on a given subject, “without hesitation, repetition or deviation”. The comedy comes from attempts to keep within these rules and the banter among the participants.
