Episode 1066 was broadcast on 27 September 1990, and was the second semi-final of Series 20.

Fiona Willis played Liz Barber, with Liz Barber winning 50 – 37. The Dictionary Corner guest was Tim Rice, and the lexicographer was Simon Mason.

Notably, the conundrum had two solutions: INCREASED and ARDENCIES (assuming both of these were in the COD8 dictionary in use at the time).
