About this title:
Panic! It's the last ever instalment of "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", with a brand new full-cast dramatisation of Mostly Harmless, the final book in Douglas Adams' famous 'trilogy in five parts'. While frequent flyer Arthur Dent searches the universe for his lost love, Ford Prefect discovers a disturbing blast from the past at "The Hitchhiker's Guide HQ". Meanwhile, on one of many versions of Earth, a blonder, more American Trillian gets tangled up with a party of lost aliens having an identity crisis. And just when Arthur thinks he has found his true vocation on the backwater planet of Lamuella, the original Trillian turns up with more than a little spanner in the works.A stolen ship, a dramatic stampede and a new and sinister Guide lead to a race to save the Earth ...again. But this time, will they succeed? Simon Jones returns as Arthur, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox, Susan Sheridan as Trillian, Sandra Dickinson as Tricia McMillian, and Stephen Moore as Marvin. William Franklyn is the book, alongside a host of famous guest stars. This extended edition features 30 minutes of material not heard on BBC Radio 4.
About the Author:
Douglas Adams (1952-2001) was the much-loved author of the Hitchhiker's Guides, all of which have sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.
This final installment of Douglas Adams's offbeat radio drama about hitchhiker Arthur Dent reunites the cast from the original BBC production. They may be--eek!--25 years older, but happily they're none the wiser. Arthur Dent, played as ever by Simon Jones, is searching several galaxies for his lost love, but that won't help you follow the plot. Instead, revel in the intentionally clunky sound effects and admire the cast's ability to pronounce things like "Stavrolmula Beta," the name of a very nasty planet. Through the magic of digital technology, the production includes the late Douglas Adams in the voice of an unhinged creature named Agrajag. This production will make you grin from beginning to end.
