Shock, Horror, First time in 50 years...

Any other Arrsers enjoy , Just a Minute?

I know many like ISIHAC and other BBC 4 comedy shows.


Tonight , shock horror , for the first time in over 50 years , that great "well in his own mind" Nicolas Parsons failed to make the cut .

Gyles.. Im a bit of smug git Brandreth stood in for the great man.

Who would have thunk?


Mind anyone listened to the early recording when Paul Merton was a new player.? Back then he was a " BBC " broadcaster, sounded like a WW2 news presenter. Today he is the love le cockney waker we all love.

Who has him on the 2018 death list?

I haven't listened to this week's yet. I still think of the Williams, Freud, Jones, Nimmo etc line ups as the Just a Minute.
Did they say why Parsons wasn't on?
 
Misunderstood the thread title. Exactly my reaction if my missus ever woke me up with a BJ! :smile:

Gyles just said " he wants a day off" . Could be the big C , AIDS, growing in toe nail.

mind He ( Gyles ) sounds like a right cunnt hosting . Much like all his other shows.

I like Gyles sometimes but he brings an edge to the game which isn't normally there. Usually there's a lot of goodwill between participants. That said, Merton is v competitive but hides it well.
Graham Norton is surprisingly good.
Hopefully Parsons will be ok.

I like him on shows just not in "His shows"

That certainly is a unique occurrence.

CA?

Really?
 
And Wille Rushton.
Remember that everyone needs a Willie!

Oh, wait, that was something else ....
 
Back in the day (not sure when - 70's) they asked Williams to Chair. Not sure why. Ithink they were trialling rotation of the panel, and Parsons was briefly a panelist. Williams wasn't at ease with the role and the idea was quickly dropped.
Rushton was very good too.
 
IIRC Rushton was a regular on "I'm sorry I haven't a clue" and an irregular regular on "just a minute".

Certainly a brilliant panelist on both although I absolutely hated Graham Norton's drawn out whining.
