Episode 1252 was broadcast on 13 March 1992, as part of Series 23.

Gareth Williams played Eric Williams, with Gareth Williams winning 57 – 15. The Dictionary Corner guest was Nigel Rees, and the lexicographer was Judy Pearsall.

NOTE: Gareth's declaration of ELITIST in round 1 should have been allowed, because it was only disallowed for having an accent, but accented words are OK in accordance with the rules of the game; the final score should, therefore, have been 64 – 15. Following this, Gareth's points total would increase by 7 for the finals.
