I suspect the rights just got more expensive. Didn't Just a Minute gave a short TV run too?


There was a series to mark its anniversary. Shame it never had further series' nor does it ever seem to get repeated. It was a great adaptation.

I wonder if they’ll get any Sale of the Century in the schedule in memory of Parsons? They often seemed to do that whenever the host of a gameshow they’ve shown had died- but with all their inactivity on social media etc, I think Challenge is sadly nearing the end.


They might only have their own version that Keith Chegwin did in 1997, and they didn't show that I believe when he died either.

The big table on Wiki suggests Challenge haven't shown Parsons Sale of The Century since 2005, but I don't know what they were showing, probably some of the late 70s or early 80s? I don't think they have anything else that Parsons presented.

From memory it was a small selection of episodes first shown during the 'Christmas Cult Selection' season in 2002, which made occasional appearances over the next couple of years.

It had several TV versions. The BBC did a couple of pilots which didn't go anywhere


Carlton did 2 series of Just a Minute in the 1990s, the first shown in London only and then when they took over Central it had a format change to become London v Midlands. With Tony Slattery and Dale Winton as regular team captains.

Then the BBC did it as a daytime series in 1999 and then a series at tea time in 2012.

The latter was the most authentic version, it was essentially just the radio show on TV. Carlton's version had a few format changes as well as the teams, one round was about an object which of course meant that there was no subject to repeat which I thought was quite a clever idea.

Guess Keith Lemon will have to host the next outing then.
Be nicer and more tolerant to each other. Them's the rules.
