    Let's hope it catches on, as it's been done in the past. Perhaps with a different generation of participants, and a cast list that changes on a regular basis, it will take off.

    Much as I love Just a Minute, I can't see it as a television programme. What is the point - apart from being much cheaper than a decent television drama!

    They tried it in 1969, and it failed.

    Its being " broadcast on TV to mark its 45th anniversary". That is "the point".

    Personally, I quite enjoyed all of the previous versions (apart from the first one, which was before my time). They were all a bit flat in terms of atmosphere (especially when Wendy Richard was on the panel glowering at everyone else) but there were decent enough moments. I thought it worked okay except for when they started introducing 'objects' and gimmicks like that. It depends on the guests. Merton's participationis encouraging.
