Cross­word An­tico


The Oldie - - CONTENTS -

Six clues are with­out def­i­ni­tion parts; their an­swers are the ti­tle of a se­ries that be­gan sixty years ago this Oc­to­ber and the sur­names of five of its lead­ing par­tic­i­pants. In eighteen clues, cryp­tic in­di­ca­tions omit ref­er­ence to parts of the an­swers to be en­tered in the grid; these parts should be high­lighted to re­veal, read­ing clock­wise, a five-word phrase as­so­ci­ated with the se­ries.
