Episode 420 was broadcast on 30 April 1986, as part of Series 9.

David White played Ann Thompson, with David White winning 68 – 24. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gyles Brandreth, and the lexicographer was Della Thompson.

NOTE: In round 5, White's declaration of UNSCALES was originally disallowed, but at the end of the show it was reinstated, but since they decided that 24 was a low enough score anyway, Ann kept the 5 points she accrued from that round.
