This review is from: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy [DVD]  (DVD)
The two discs in the DVD set are one for the six parts of the show, three of which have been extended. There is a choice of English sub-titles or, more interestingly, on screen production notes which carry lots of interesting information, on locations etc, including the recipe for "Hagra Biscuits".
The second has all the other bits, such as "The Making of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" and other documentaries, and appearances on shows like "Pebble Mill at One" & "Tomorrow's World", there's even a deleted scene as well as the ubiquitous out-takes.
Yes the effects aren't up to modern standards, but we are talking of 1980, very much pre modern day computer graphics. Remember the "computer" graphics in H2G2 are actually dam good back lit amimations.
So sit back grab your towel (I've get one of the special towels) and enjoy.
