h2g2 Guide Editors

It's a good week for all things Hitchhiker's this week!

The h2g2 Front Page topical section includes links to some of h2g2's Hitchhiker's Entries as well as the lovely portrait of our dear Douglas Adams. It would have been Douglas' 66th birthday on 11 March smiley - cakesmiley - candle

The 'Douglas Adams Papers' radio broadcast by John Lloyd is available in the BBC Radio 4 Archive http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09tbl2s

It is the 40th Anniversary of the first broadcast of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show this year. To celebrate, Radio 4 have put together 'The Hexagonal Phase', a new radio show featuring many of the cast of the original as well as other notable people such as Prof Stephen Hawking. It is based on Eoin Colfer's 'And Another Thing', but also includes elements from unused scripts and writings by Douglas. The first episode will air on 8 March, 40 years to the day since the first episode of the first series was broadcast http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09vm093

If you are able to listen to the radio show, join the conversation here F19585?thread=8319318 and tell us h2g2ers what you think of it.

If you have any reminiscences to share about your first experience of hearing the original series, or your thoughts on first reading the books, etc A943184 let us know about that, too!
