Listener Crossword: History


Further information

The website editor has produced a collection of notes about the early puzzles, based on text that appeared with their solutions, as well as letters on correspondence pages. The early Listener editors were forthright and often humorous in their comments. This information has been added to the information about the puzzles in that section, but is also available in the following PDF documents
0–500      501–1000
1001–1500      1501–2000
