Re: Nicholas Parsons CBE RIP

He was still working this year on BBC Radio 4's just a minute - he started when the show started in 1967!

His mind and comic timing was sharp until the end.

There will be no repetition. He'll be missed.

Re: Nicholas Parsons CBE RIP

I'm afraid that's a rather unfortunate and unexpected hesitation from this player of the magnificent game.

He was utterly unique. Radio 4 have paid lovely tributes to him today.
