Episode 2391 was broadcast on 12 November 1998, as part of Series 39.

Terry Knowles played Liz Annison, with Terry Knowles winning 60 – 39. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jo Brand, and the lexicographer was Mark Nyman.

An outtake played at the end of Episode 2678 indicates the conundrum was initially incorrectly spelt by the production team, having been erroneously spelt BREIFCASE before it was noticed and changed, to howling laughter.
