BBC Audience - Just a Minute gets festive with a special panto edition of the nation's favourite panel show!

Just a Minute Does Panto!
Just a Minute is 50 years old next year, and what better way to kick off the celebrations than by combining the longest-running panel show with another great British institution - the pantomime!

In Just a Minute Does Panto! Nicholas Parsons is joined by Just a Minute regulars, Paul Mertonand Gyles Brandreth, as they journey through Pantoland in search of the missing Just a Minute golden whistle! Their companions on their quest include Graham NortonKatherine RyanRufus Hound and Shelia Hancock.

There'll be adventure! Genies! Panto dames! Goodies! Baddies! Audience participation! But above all, at the heart of it, a cracking game of the nation's favourite comedy show - Just a Minute!

Nicholas and the team would love to see our audience getting into the festive spirit, so feel free to wear your snazziest Christmas jumper, adorn yourself in tinsel or maybe even wear a Santa's hat!
