So long, and thanks for all the fish

Another pressie, which doesn’t even require you to leave your house, and you may still possibly have time to order it from the BBC webshop in time for Christfest.

It’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Collector’s Edition CD, which contains both of the original radio series, first broadcast in 1978, plus Douglas Adams’s Guide to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s narrated by the original Voice, Peter Jones, and has interviews with cast members and the late Douglas Adams himself.

I got The Complete Radio Series from Santa last year, and it has kept me amused throughout 2007. I reckon The Collector’s Edition is a better bet, as it appears to have more stuff but is £10 cheaper.

If you know someone who loves the books, this is a great pressie as it is how the story of the celestial guidebook, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect and Zaphod Beeblebrox was first told.

    Think will buy that as a post-Christmas present for myself!

    Do, honestly! It’s hours of fun, and great to hear the old 70s sound effects and trying to work out if that laser gun sound is actually a BBC techie standing on a toilet with a hairdryer while shaking the shower curtain.
