winnie.
Clue for 44.
"Hah har Jim Lard! Ta'bloons! Pieces of eight! Sparnish treasure..." The answer is a character in the same same book/film suggested by these words {not the person who spoke the words). When you have found this fictional character google him to find his historical counterpart and the relation with the rest of the clue.

Thank you savt. In between watching Downton Abbey I have got the answer to clue 44. Your 'hint' was brilliant.(ever thought about being a writer!)

Have now worked out answer to 72--thanks.
Just to check--does 87 begin with R ?

Afraid not a R for 87 - link with 80 perhaps. 72 could have been damaged by 78.

Could you help me out with some direction on 79 (my last one)? I am obviously being thick as it doesn't seem to be causing others any difficulty!
