Parlour Game

Another programme, of a lighter kind, which has been wearing its way rather into my affection is Talk Yourself Out of This. It will not please those who dislike, or despise, all forms of quizzes, interro- gations and parlour games in general ; but it is, for the rest of us, a likable little number. The victims are faced with a predicament apiece, and arc obliged to extricate themselves by explanation ; they face a panel of inquisitors who are always acute. and sometimes witty. The programme will set nothing on fire, but it has a pretty glow of its own.
