Don’t panic! The Hitchhiker’s saga returns once again with a full-cast dramatisation of Mostly Harmless, the fifth book in Douglas Adams’s famous ‘trilogy in five parts’.
‘A radio event... the great original cast has been reassembled’. Gillian Reynolds, The Daily Telegraph
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 McMillan, and Stephen Moore as Marvin. William Franklyn is the Book, Rula Lenska is also the Book and Samantha Béart is Random. Guest stars include Miriam Margolyes, Griff Rhys Jones, John Challis, Roy Hudd, Saeed Jaffrey, and Jonathan Pryce.
This extended edition features 40 minutes of material not heard on BBC Radio 4.

Someone missed the point.
Great. So, why on Earth are these files not stereo files? Whoever created this version does not understand the history of the show.
Great Drama Ruined By Bad Sound
The final 2 BBC Dramatisations of Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide books is ruined here by the awful sound quality. Avoid.
Needs good sound to enjoy
The Hich Hikers Guide radio series has the best production of pretty much any radio series. There is even a surround sound version. Audiobook on iTunes sound horrible and are in Mono, its not even up to AM radio standards please give us a choice of quallity for audiobooks iTunes.
Untill this I think people should buy the CD of this, it is simply brilliant.
