Episode 2433 was broadcast on 11 January 1999, as part of Series 40.

Andrew Thompson played Michael Gildersleve, with Michael Gildersleve winning 59 – 52. The Dictionary Corner guest was Christopher Timothy, and the lexicographer was Damian Eadie.

This was the first episode sponsored by Seven Seas Cod Liver Oil, and thus this show also marks the first appearance of the "Seven Seas Teaser", an anagram given to viewers to solve during the break that formed a predecessor to the 15 round format's Teatime Teasers.
