Title Observe the Globe
Setter Awinger
Series The Listener
Number 4607
Date 16/05/2020
Grid 1512 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble In nine cells, clashing letters from crossing answers can form thematic names, some informal. Nine across clues contain an extra word that must be removed before solving; the words describe the names and what each clash cell must contain, making real words or phrases. Single extra words in nine down clues give a notable occasion and how three people contributed; their surnames must be highlighted (20 cells), forming a thematic structure. Their associated clash letter must be marked with a cross, showing the decisive event. Numbers in brackets are the lengths of grid entries. The Chambers Dictionary (2016) is the primary reference; one answer is an abbreviation.
