The theme is colourful so you should not flag, especially with Truast's explanation of 14 across.

Hi.
This is the first time I have ever got anywhere with an EV so I am a bit unsure of what to do.
Thank you for the help above. I've certainly got the theme and the signalled connections.
However, I am not sure exactly what to highlight. I can see that one of the signalled connections could link to all three parts of the theme. Am I correct, or should I be checking my other answers ?
Thanks again.
fred

Fred 108.

What you need to highlight is a two word ( 5,4 ) item which contains all three thematic words. The five letters are part of a nine word answer and the four letters are part of a five word answer immediately below it in the grid.
