Hitchhiker’s Guide 36th Anniversary

Today is the 36th anniversary of the very first broadcast of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio series. To celebrate, BBC Radio 4 Extra will replay the first two series of the radio show, and they are launching a new version of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy computer game, which is a text-based game that started 30 years ago. Also, on March 29th, the original radio cast of Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan, and Setphen Moore will be broadcasting a new recording based on the original scenarios, as adapted by Dirk Maggs. Anglonerd is celebrating the anniversary, too! Here is an exclusive interview with Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent in the radio show and the TV series, on the origins of H2G2 and his friendship with Douglas Adams:
