Twenty-five years after the original radio series of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy exploded into the public consciousness, the further exploits of its bewildered hero Arthur Dent are being brought to life in their original medium. This dramatisation of the last three books, Life, The Universe and Everything; So Long and Thanks For All the Fish and Mostly Harmless, features Douglas Adams himself, thanks to the wonders of digital technology, and includes new material written by him specially for the radio sequels. The original Hitchhikers radio cast is returning; Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect, Susan Sheridan as Trillian, Mark Wing-davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox and Stephen Moore as Marvin The Paranoid Android. The late Peter Joness great friend, William Franklyn, replaces him as The Voice of the Book. Also invloved are famous names such as Joanna Lumley, Richard Griffiths, Chris Langham, Fred Trueman and Henry Blofeld. The shows will be broadcast in two series in September 2004 and spring 2005. Publication of the scriptbook ties-in with the series climax.Douglas Adams is a perennial classic, with whom generation after generation falls in loveexemplified when Hitchhikers was voted Englands fourth favourite book in the BBCs Big Read. $60 million motion picture from Walt Disney in spring 2005 will guarantee that Hitchhikers is very much in the public eye. Vol. 1 of the Radio Scripts was a great success and still backlists. Beautifully produced, must-have collectors edition.

About the author (2005)

Douglas Adams created all manifestations of Hitchhiker's: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptations, comic book, bath towel and, finally, he posthumously shares the writing credit for the movie. He died in 2001 and is sadly missed.
