Episode 1879 was broadcast on 12 November 1996, and was the second semi-final of Group D in the Supreme Championship.

Jackie McLeod played Clive Spate, with Jackie McLeod winning 49 – 46. The Dictionary Corner guest was Barry Cryer, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: The conundrum has two valid solutions: PENETRANT and REPENTANT; oddly enough, Richard Whiteley even mentioned that fact on the actual show.
