I bought the radio scripts when they first appeared, lost them, and have spent the best part of 15 years trying to track them down again. Remember that the scripts were often written the day before the show (or sometimes afterwards ...) so many of the effects are tailored for the cast and crew. There's some hiliarious stuff here which you will not find in any other HHGTTG memorabilia. Read and enjoy.

After having first read the books, I got the radio scripts to find how they had been transformed from radio show to novel. I found that aside from enjoying the familiarity of the Hitchhiker's series in script form, there were new, great lines that got edited out, even some huge scenes that were ignored. For a fan of the series, this is a must-read.

Just superb, that is all I can say. Douglas Adams' awesome creation is superbly documented here in these radio scripts. It contains so much inside information on who says what, when and most importantly why! For each episode, there is commentary by a producer, or actor, plus, sometimes, by DA himself, as to the reasons why things happened the way they did, or why something was cast a particular way.

The whole scripts embellish the story with amazing colour and life that just shows how much goes into not only the creative genius of DA, but also the production of each episode for the radio.

It also contains a missing Hitchhikers sketch, "Fit 6 and a half", although this is really just a few minutes of dialogue.

If you are a die hard HHGTTG fan this is for you. If you enjoyed the film, then this is for you too. Just brilliant.

Brilliant. A must buy for all hitch-hiking fans. I got it today and it is just so funny and it has great insights into the original series' production. Plus for those of the drama-mind you can reinact your fave series right at home 5*

Although is must be noted that this edition is not quite original, there is the infamous poet issue. I'm sure when I first saw the published "original scripts" it contained the name of Douglas Adams' childhood friend long after the radio programs had been "doctored".
The original radio series has to go down as one of the greatest works of imaginative fiction in history. I always felt it was so much better than the subsequent TV series and the books.

I do not mean to speak about Douglas Adams. His Hitch Hicker's Guide is simply the bible of rationalism.
Here are the original radio scripts. The edition is accurate, full of references, complete.
Besides, English is not my language, and the scripts help me to understand every second of the radio series.
This book is what I was looking for.

Whether you're following along with the audio CDs or tapes or just reading it by itself, the radio scripts are brilliant and tons of fun. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the series.

Really amazing. It's really nice to see the scripts before the shows were cut to length. Also the introductions are very interesting
