This 11 CDs set brings together five sets of four episodes, each of which is highlighting the enormous contribution given by the five long time players of Just a Minute: Peter Jones, Clement Freud, Derek Nimmo, Paul Merton, and Kenneth Williams. They include the very first episode of Just a Minute, four episodes from the 1970s, five from the 1980s, and 10 from the 1990s.
There is also a bonus disc, which includes the first episode of 1992, and an episode where Clement Freud didn't turn up, and saw Ian Messiter, the creator of the game, chaired and we find out how good Nicholas Parsons is as a panellist for the only time since the second season.
These are great, vintage recordings, though with some of the earlier ones the sound quality is not exceptional. For the price, it is particularly good value. For those who want a more modern recording, I can recommend Just A Minute: Complete Series 57
and Just A Minute: Complete Series 58
Incidentally, 2012 sees another milestone in Just a Minute, with a new television series and Just a Minute going to India, and there are many releases in both book and audio form early on in 2012, so please check back for those. Long may this shall continue.
