Description

March 1978 saw the first ever transmission of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on BBC Radio 4; the beginning of a cult phenomenon. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: The Original Radio Scripts includes a previously unpublished Hitchhiker script, 'Sheila's Ear'; an introduction by producer Geoffrey Perkins; and a Who's Who of all those involved in the radio series. This scriptbook features all twelve original radio scripts - Hitchhiker as it was written and exactly as it was broadcast for the very first time. They include amendments and additions made during recordings and original notes on the writing and producing of the series by Douglas Adams and Geoffrey Perkins. For those who have always loved Douglas Adams, as well as for his new generation of fans, these scripts are essential reading - with the previously 'lost' script making this edition a must-have piece of Adams memorabilia. Douglas Adams created all manifestations of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: 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.In addition to Hitchhiker, He is also the author of the Dirk Gently novels: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul and the unfinished The Salmon of Doubt.
