Episode 6389 was broadcast on 1 July 2016, as part of Series 75.

Andrew Fenton played Michael Hawkins, with Andrew Fenton winning 79 – 54. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jon Culshaw, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

After the conundrum went unsolved, the audience member who solved it was Apterite and Series 53 contestant Anthony Endsor.
