Just a couple of parsing queries :-

1Ac Newspaper feature on screen is hit in a big way (8) W?L?O?E? I think it has to be WALLOPED (hit in a big way), but I don't understand "Newspaper feature on screen".

10Ac How to greet Eskimo? One that's heartless may keep stressing an error? (3,4,4,2,2) R?B ?N?S ?O?E ?N ?T. It is obviously RUB ONES NOSE IN IT but, whilst I get RUB ONES NOSE (How to greet an Eskimo) how does "One that's heartless may" become IN IT?

'One' refers to Eskimo, or Inuit, which when 'heartless' = IN(u)IT
Walloped - 'wall' (screen) + 'op-ed' (newspaper feature)

1a seen elsewhere as
Wall - screen
Op Ed - opposite editorial, newspaper feature.
(Op Ed is, apparently in Chambers, for the definition)

Thanks to both Captain2 and Lie-in-King. You both deserve Best Answer but, as I can't do that, I thought I would write a Thank You to both of you.
Accepted with a smile, Tim. :)
Indeed :-)
