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.
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.
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.
