Episode 4769 was broadcast on 3 March 2009, as part of Series 60.

Kirk Bevins played Fiona Shaw, with Kirk Bevins winning 97 – 67. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dr Phil Hammond, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Originally, HEDARIM was disallowed by Susie Dent as it doesn't have its own entry. However, by the time the next letters round had finished, Dent had found it under HEDER, and Kirk was therefore awarded the points.
