Episode 1034 was broadcast on 14 August 1990, as part of Series 20.

Chris Bergman played Denys Hollis, with Denys Hollis winning 31 – 27. The Dictionary Corner guest was Martin Jarvis, and the lexicographer was Freda Thornton.

Notably, Hollis won without spotting any words longer than 5 letters in the letters rounds, or reaching the target for either numbers game. This is likely the only time this has happened (excluding Celebrity Countdown).
