Grid 1313 barred grid with 180 symmetry. Clues are presented in a single numbered list.
Preamble All answers are entered down, across or up the grid starting at the relevant number. They are clued normally and individually, but punctuation may mislead.
There are eighteen words 'hidden' inside or between words and they form a thematic series. They should be replaced by appropriate symbols.
1, 25 gives an alternative title, with 1 being aptly adjusted to give the first part of the series.
Solvers should highlight four names which fit with the theme.
Those four names plus three of the eighteen words in the series are not in Chambers.
