News Quiz

I finished this week’s Listener puzzle, “News Quiz”, on Saturday evening, but I only just now noticed, as I was preparing my entry to send in, that there is a little extra surprise concealed in the finished grid. The instructions tell us to highlight one “thematically located” cell in each column to produce the answer to a question; they don’t mention that another twelve letters in the grid spell out something more, also appropriate to the theme. Sweet!

A fairly easy and straightforward puzzle as Listener crosswords go, with a lot of clever clues and some nice discoveries to make at the end when the last pieces fall into place.
