Is there any query about the number of 's' in the anagram for # 22? My preferred answer only has three.

@Opsimath,
Oh....perhaps I'm on completely the wrong lines. The version with 4 x s of the answer I have is TV not film. Back to the drawing board.

No. 117 generally an enjoyable exercise. However, despite some intensive googling etc. {horse racing, football, prominent people....} I haven't cracked the sequence to no. 25. Any hints for swops appreciated {similarly 35}.

@Ramires7,
Question 25. A clue is in the question.

I am finding Questions 16, 35 and 37 particularly difficult!

@sophocles,
16 could be a BOY HELPER perhaps

@Mudelta,
It could be, but definition and examples do not fully convince. What do others think? Any other clues/swops etc.?

@Ramires7,
I cannot find a definition which fully covers those sentences either.I have even asked a couple of English teachers I know who have mentioned BOYHELPER,among a couple of others, as a possibility but I am not convinced.I am happy with all my other answers

@Opsimath,
There is a word that fits perfectly for #16.
Can anyone suggest a non cricketing link for Stewart and Healy?

@glos 10,
Have to agree that "Boyhelper" is not correct for question 16. Another possibility was "Daytonan" but does not quite fit either!

@Mudelta,
Is it any more convincing than "Boyhelper" or "Daytonan"?

@sophocles,
Can offer hints for 35 and 37 and indeed most others.

Stuck for 16 and 50 also 25 despite hints

@Green Fade,
Scratch 50, just realised the error I'd been making Very Happy

But is there more to 49 than meets the eye?

@Green Fade,
Yes, there is more than meets the eye. Radio isn't the only thing one can listen to. I would appreciate a hint on 37. I have an answer but I don't like it.

@dud5ers,
I don't like my answer for Question 37 aswell. I have gone for a 2008 film starring Two actors and one Actress, not Three actors though.
