Just a Minute: The Best of 2011 gives you the opportunity to relive or catch up with four of the best shows from this year's broadcasts. Featuring regulars such as Graham Norton, Tony Hawks and Julian Clary, and guests, including the irrepressible Ross Noble, Sue Perkins and Liza Tarbuck. All the participants are determined to create havoc and mayhem in their attempt to talk non-stop for sixty seconds on hilariously tackled subjects, from How to Clean a Chandelier, to On Valentine's Day, I Received...

This double CD collection features four episodes from Just a Minute which were originally broadcast in 2011.

Episode one, first broadcast on 07 February 2011, features Paul Merton, Gyles Brandreth, Shappi Khorsandi and Rick Wakeman (making his first appearance on the show). There's a running gag in this episode that revolves around mentioning Parson's book whenever the opportunity arises.

Episode two, originally broadcast on 21 February 2011, features Paul Merton, Ross Noble, Tony Hawks and Liza Tarbuck.

Episode three, first broadcast on 28 February 2011, features Paul Merton, Sir Terry Wogan (making his first appearance on the show), Julian Clary and Graham Norton. There's much amusement to be had by the fact that Wogan's trademark pauses causes a huge problem for him keeping the subject for more than a few seconds.

Episode four, originally broadcast on 30 May 2011, features Paul Merton, Stephen Fry, Sue Perkins and Fi Glover (making her first appearance on the show). Perkins manages to talk for a minute on a subject and, rather cruelly Fry manages 59.5 seconds before he is challenged correctly.

Another amusing two hours of fun are to be had here.
