Happy New Year to Radio Times addicts. I'm stuck in the top RH corner.
4D. City bowled over with zest. ???O. I can only think of OSLO, but that makes:
8A. Allow king to enter reserve. ?S?O?.
I don't want to give up yet, so any clues please?

silly boy scrobe:

4d Vigo ....... bowled over = vi (6 balls in a cricket over) and go (zest)
