Clement Freud dies
Clement Freud died yesterday. Listening to Just a Minute on BBC Radio 4 is one of the things I miss most about not living in the UK. I know I could listen on the internet but it’s not the same as having the radio on in the kitchen while cooking dinner.
For those of you who don’t know him, Clement Freud was the grandson of Sigmund and brother of artist Lucian. Clement was a chef, a food writer, a politician and a radio panelist for three decades.
Just a Minute is a game where panelists compete to see who can talk the longest without hesitation, deviation or repetition. Try it, it’s not easy.
Here’s a clip of Clement on action on Just a Minute – remember, no repetition, deviation or hesitation.
