If the following are correct I do not completely see how they relate to their clues:

5d Try at this place as reported HEAR (here)
24d Female, the same academician D??A DONA (?)
16d Old-fashioned carved shape? SQUARE CUT. Is a square cut a shape?
19a Keep moving about in search endlessly at the front PROW. Why \'Keep moving about in search endlessly\'?
25a Do another trip travelling ON THE ROAD. Why \'Do another trip\'?

Any assistance gratefully received.

Hi Hector, "on the road" is an anagram of "do another" and trip indicates an anagram.

Thank you all.

I'm still stuck with 24d DORA (Female, the same academician) I can now see the RA stands for Royal Academician but where does the DO come from?
