Episode 1036 was broadcast on 16 August 1990, as part of Series 20.

Tony Hallam played Denys Hollis, with Tony Hallam winning 45 – 26. The Dictionary Corner guest was Martin Jarvis, and the lexicographer was Freda Thornton.

NOTE: The spelling of the conundrum solution is unknown; it may have been SUBSIDISE rather than SUBSIDIZE, in which case Hollis was incorrectly denied points for his guess of SUBSIDIES, which would also have been an anagram.
