A Special Edition of the original radio series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation’s Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian poll. Starring Peter Jones, Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan and Stephen Moore, these six episodes (Fit the First to Fit the Sixth) have been remastered to modern-day standards by Dirk Maggs, and for the first time feature Philip Pope’s arrangement of the familiar theme tune, with newly recorded announcements by John Marsh. Also included on this Special Edition is Douglas Adams’s Guide to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, first broadcast in 1999, which looks at the genesis and phenomenal success of the series.
CLASSIC RADIO SERIES
Wonderful, surreal, and funny radio dramatisation that never loses its appeal with repeat listening, i recommend this if you have a few hours to kill, or if you have a little more time read the books, a big thumbs up on this one.
Hitchhikers guide to hilarity
Absolutely top notch entertainment. Buy this if you have the books or if you don’t. Buy this if you have the time to listen, if you don’t have the time make it! For excellent comedic scripting please see babel fish section!
Deserved cult classic
Extremely witty and still astutely relevant this series is one of the most treasured things on my ipod. If only Radio 4 could produce something of equal worth for today’s listeners. Now, stop reading this rubbish and buy it now. You will not regret it.
