Présentation de l'éditeur

March 1978 saw the first ever transmission of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on BBC Radio 4; the beginning of a cult phenomenon. This 25th Anniversary edition of the scriptbook includes a previously unpublished Hitchhiker script, 'Sheila's Ear'; a new introduction by producer Geoffrey Perkins; and a Who's Who of all those involved in the radio series. As well as all the new material, of course there are the 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 Adams and Perkins. For those who have always loved 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.

Book Description

The original, complete, and totally unedited scripts from the now famous BBC "Hitchhiker Radio Show." Join Douglas Adams on an epic adventure in time and space--including some helpful advice on how to see the universe for less than 30 Altairian dollars a day.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treat for any Hitchhiker fan 17 octobre 1998
Par Rey Fox - Publié sur
It's a shame that this book sems to be so hard to find. I was actually introduced to the Hitchhiker stories through the radio show (the audio recordings of which are probably even harder to find), which was a marvel of storytelling and sound effects when it came out (it still is, of course). Ultimately, the script book is a much better read if you have heard the original radio series, but even if you haven't, check it out (if you can). The scripts are written in true Douglas Adams style, with directions written in there that often don't have to do with the show itself (such as Adams' long description of the Bugblatter Beast of Traal), and it may be your only chance to learn about the Haggunenonns, the super-evolutionary race of aliens originally put in place of the rock group Disaster Area during the black stuntship scene. Be warned, however, since the series was written episodically, meaning that Adams never had any grand scheme for the show, and just wrote it as he went along (explains a lot, doesn't it?). You may think that the plot of the Restaurant at the End of the Universe was convoluted, but I thought it made perfect sense in comparison to the plot of the two radio series. Either way, it's a crazy ride, and worth every minute spent trying to make sense of it. If you consider yourself a HHG fan, then take it upon yourself to listen to the original radio series, and then read the scripts (which clarify it a good deal). Just make sure that you know where your towel is first.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Radio is defined as an auditory medium by which bipedal... 12 juin 2002
Par Jay Smith - Publié sur
Format:Broché forms are required to use a seldom-exercised ability called "imagination" which, with effort, allows the user to paint a mental tapestry that is superior in many respects to any computer generated image or subjective image of perfection.
(takes a breath)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy goes on a bit about the relative superiority of radio as a medium that stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain, but it also notes several references to various works that endure in a medium regarded as deader than the telegraph.
The Hitchhiker's Guide is not only proof that radio is still a viable medium for drama, but that Douglas Adams is a genius. The show, scripted week-by-week by DNA and Geoffrey Perkins was easily translated to books and television with minimal edits. Yes, the second series is a bit off the ultimate track, but it is quite original and the foot notes from Douglas and Perkins are very insightful. These footnotes exist as a log of what took place when it all began and, sadly, as the only memoir to them.
If you can find it, get it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More great fodder for any Hitchhiker fan! 21 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
As a longtime fan of Adam's Sci-Fi Comedy series, I was delighted to discover this book. It was a lot of fun to read, and offered much insight into the process behind the Original Hitchhiker's Guide Radio Show. And there are a few scenes that never made it to the novels. Douglas Adams is funny in any form, and this was no exception.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 5 stars and more! 16 décembre 2006
Par George Griggs - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book from first page until last. How often does a book cause the reader to laugh out loud? It happened to me at least on every page. Not only does this book contain all of the original radio scripts and every episode (including a hilarious lost episode), but it has numerous eccentric "stage and sound directions" from the author throughout every episode. The book also contains many stories about the creations of some Hitch Hiker characters, story ideas, music, writing and recording process, direct from the author and creator of Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy. When I finished reading this book I realized how Douglas Adams took radio plays to another level and beyond.

I would rate this 5 stars...and beyond.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The quick reference to quotes 1 mars 2006
Par T. J. M. Klerk - Publié sur
If you like the radio plays and cannot remember the lines - this book is ideal for finding the quick quote you were looking for. And Hitch Hiker's is full of quotes.

And if your HiFi doesn't work, reading this book gives you the radioplay buzzing in your head. Great book. Great little titbits you (didn't) want to know about the series.
