Episode 5284 was broadcast on 13 June 2011, as part of Series 65.

Graeme Cole played Graham Moonie-Dalton, with Graeme Cole winning 94 – 75. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jon Culshaw, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Round 13 of this game was reshot due to potential obscenity after the letters selection started SHTIE. However, the amusing out-take has surfaced on YouTube [1].
