NotesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8 1.9 Christmas Special
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 Election Special
  3. The Tub of Lard was a stand-in for Roy Hattersley, who had pulled out of a recording at the last minute for the third time. Angus explained that Hattersley and the lard were "imbued with many of the same qualities."
  4. Margaret Thatcher Special, focusing on her period as Prime Minister. Agreed by both Ian and Paul to be the show's 'worst' episode, due to the two guests doing nothing but "spit poison at each other".
  5. The 50th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  6. In a typical example of the occasional 'end of season japes', Ian and Paul swapped seats - and dress senses - for this episode.
  7. It was during this episode that Ian was suffering from Appendicitis.
  8. Special guest (in the odd-ones-out round): Germaine Greer – extra features include a video diary from series 5 guest "Tub of Lard"
  9. The parrot had been trained to squawk out various heckles at Angus, but its only contribution was a brief "Hello" towards the end. Paul Merton later explained that such (failed) gimmicks like this contributed to his decision to take the following series off.
  10. The 100th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  11. As a former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Nigel Lawson currently holds the record for the highest government position (held either before, during or after their appearance) of any guest in the show's history.
  12. Originally, only Christine had been due to appear, but she requested an extra seat be reserved for husband Neil (only a week after Martin Bell had famously ousted him from Parliament in that year's general election). This marks the only time to date where the panel has consisted of more than five people.
  13. The 150th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  14. Due to the legal circumstances surrounding him at the time, Shayler's contribution was recorded via satellite linkup from a studio in Paris, which was fed into a monitor on set.
  15. Robert Reed was a member of Conservative Future who, in the footsteps of William Hague (by this point the party's leader), had made a speech at the previous year's Conservative Party Conference at the age of 16. [1]
  16. The game finished as a draw at 10-10. Ian and Paul were made to play Stone, Paper, Scissors to find a winner. Ian chose Paper and Paul chose Scissors, thus making Paul's team the winners.
  17. Ian's team had won the show 13-12, but as a 'tribute' to American guest Rich Hall, Paul's team were made the winners. This was a reference to the-then ongoing American election controversy, where George W. Bush was going to win the election even though Al Gore had seemingly received more votes than him.
  18. Moved back a day because of BBC One's coverage of Children in Need
  19. The game finished as a draw at 10-10, so Angus asked a tie-break question, which was "What is the capital of Albania?", which Sanjeev correctly answered as Tirana, thus making Ian's team the winners.
  20. The real Sir Elton John was due to appear, but pulled out at the last minute. His absence was only mentioned in captions between rounds, where he was frequently referred to as a "bastard".
  21. Making her first appearance at the age of 16, Charlotte Church is the current record holder for the show's youngest ever guest (when ranking by age on appearance).
  22. Making his second appearance at the age of 88, Bill Deedes is the current record holder for the show's oldest ever guest *when ranking by age on appearance).
  23. The 200th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  24. The game actually finished as a tie at 13-13, however Ian complained about leaving the score as a tie and Jack Dee duly awarded an extra point to Paul's team, thus making them the winners.
  25. The 250th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  26. Ian's team were winning for the majority of the show (and actually won outright), but at the end the scores were fixed to say 45-1 to Paul's team. This is possibly because of Dr Phil Hammond's remarks that he was told he could host the show if his team won.
  27. Moved back a day because of BBC One's coverage of England's match against Brazil at Wembley Stadium.
  28. The 300th broadcast episode of HIGNFY
  29. 2008 US Election special
  30. Paul Merton was ill so Frank Skinner took his place
  31. This episode also included a guest appearance by Brian Blessed, dressed as Father Christmas.
