Excellent! But anyone know how folks in the U.S. without an Infinite Improbability Drive can get it?

P.S. I can describe it in exactly two words! :)

I think you can just stream it from their ( bbc radio 4 ) site when they start broadcasting..

Or if you miss it ..use their "listen again" feature the link is on their site ( free ..unlike what we have in France from France inter ou France culture :( ....

Boy, you guys are on the ball as always - I just came in to post this link.

What odds "tertiary phase" being the top UK search term in October? Time to start honing those well-targeted book and CD affilate pages.

Remember, though: you only have seven days to listen again.

Put a cassette in the radio and set the station before I left for work this morning.

People in the UK still listen to Radios? Wow...

I've got all the books nicely stacked on my shelf. You know there is a movie coming out?

They will stop listening to radios when they get those newfangled TVs to watch.

Only joking...

The TV version of the Hitchhikers' Guide was crap. The Guide was conceived as a radio programme and is funniest as an audio expeperience. You need to use your own imagination to get the msot out of it.

Mind you, the (relative) low quality of the TV version didn't stop me and a colleague walking out of a course to watch an episode, when it was first shown in the early 1980s (no video recorders then, kiddywinks). We had been broken up into teams and set some work to prepare for the next day. Tony and I announced to our team leader that everything had to be done and dusted before nine o'clock, as we were going to watch the Hitchhikers' Guide, no matter what. If the team hadn't finished by then, the two of us wpuld simply walk out. I don't think she believed us. Her expression at 8.58, when we left the room, her not having got the team to complete the task, was a treat. Not that she'd got them much further when we reappeared at 9.30, so we might as well have been watching the telly anyway.

Douglas Adams, of course, died while working on the film version. This wasn't the first attempt at one, and he'd walked out of several previous negotiations (including one where a Hollywood producer had suggested Hugh Grant as Arthur Dent).

I look forward to the film, and to my expectations of disappointment being proved ill-founded.

BTW, for those unfortunate to have missed yesterday's broadcast, it was superb!

Its kinda round and spins, has people living on it that fight more often than not. Has hot and cold areas.
has areas of exceptional beauty (Colchester, Essex) and extreme ugliness (Haverhill, Suffolk).

How about that?
