Nicholas Parsons (2014 event)

The much-loved radio show Just a Minute has been delighting listeners for 46 years and every single episode of the programme has been hosted by Nicholas Parsons. Now, Parsons has produced his first book about Britain’s longest-running radio comedy show, and the venerable entertainer joined us at the Book Festival to enjoy some favourite moments and linguistic contortions that have made it such an enduring hit. Recorded live at the 2014 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
