Episode 3219 was broadcast on 28 March 2002, as part of Series 47.

Rupert Stokoe played Alex Rossiter, with Rupert Stokoe winning 82 – 60. The Dictionary Corner guest was Richard Stilgoe, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The conundrum solution, AUDACIOUS, is the only word featuring six vowels to have ever appeared on the show (be it as a conundrum or as a solution in a letters game). Six-vowel letters selections became illegal from Series 30 onward, following the institution of a rule requiring at least four consonants to be chosen in every letters game.
