The Radio 4 Just A Minute panel will see a new related book released later this month.

Written by Gyles Brandreth, A History of Britain in a Minute will be published by BBC Books on September 22. It is now available to order.

Describing the book as “hilarious and addictive”, they said, “This isn’t just another storybook – there’s a catch! From Stonehenge and Boudicca to Megxit and Brexit, every topic is written in 60-second increments, without hesitation, repetition, or deviation.”

A History of Britain in a Minute celebrates key moments, people and places from our past: Kings and Queens, Heroes and Villains, Triumphs and Disasters, Inventions and Events, Battles and Bonnets, Art, Science, Literature, Entertainment, Sports, Gossip, and more. Some entries are uninterrupted minutes, while others present challenges for repetition and even, uh… hesitation. You’ll even find other Just A Minute panelists occasionally grabbing the pen to regale us with their witty takes on the story.

They add: “You’ve never heard Britain’s history told like this. You’ll enjoy every tumultuous minute of it.”

Hardcover and ebook formats are now available for pre-order.
