Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Having recorded this off the ABC radio some years ago (onto 4 cassettes both sides)
I think the writing and acting is very clever,and you never know The "Vogons" might
have seen it on tv and have a few ideas,so keep a sharp look out in the sky for that
"constructor fleet!"
See you down the pub mate,oh yes! don't forget the peanuts!!!!!!

Why a single file?

I agree with the above ^^

My 8 year old son loves the HHGTTG, but how on earth is he going to navigate which episode he is up to? Ridiculous. I regret paying for this, and do not recommend it at all.


Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy

One of the greatest publications to come out of "Megadodo Publications" or at least the BBC. New Sci-Fi fans, while should aquaint themeselves with this work by Douglas Adams but should be aware it comes in five books called phases. So when buying on itunes get all five ( I guarantee you wont be disappointed). The first two phases were made famous through the BBC show by the same name. A great listen....
