Episode 4694 was broadcast on 21 October 2008, as part of Series 59.

Charlie Reams played Allan Harmer, with Charlie Reams winning 115 – 88. The Dictionary Corner guest was Brian Capron, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode possibly made history, being the first one in which a contestant's offering was bleeped out. (Previously, instead of doing this a scripted round would be filmed to take its place.) A clip can be viewed here: [1].
