Re(1): Listener No. 4378: Present Day by Horvendile

Playfair encoding and decoding always sends my head spinning, but there was so much to encode or decode here that in a short while I'd internalised the process. The amazing thing is that the puzzle was solvable without any computer program for cracking Playfair. I was stumped at first but then managed to complete the bottom row and place a few other letters, so it wasn't that long before the code phrase became clear.

A tough end to the year, which on the whole has been rather easier than average. I agree with John that the clues were excellent and the puzzle as a whole was impressive. Thanks to Horvendile.
