Note: This is a good reason why this forum should be renamed to media, as it rules out radio and stuff.

Anyway, the BBC have announced (http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/news/cult/2003/11/04/7768.shtml):

"Production is under way on the Tertiary Phase of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, with episodes due to begin airing on Radio 4 in spring 2004.
The Hitchhiker's production is set to re-unite six members of the original cast: Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan, Stephen Moore and announcer John Marsh. Those joining them will include William Franklyn as the voice of the Book and Richard Griffiths as Slartibartfast. The late Douglas Adams himself will appear as Agrajag (a cameo he favoured playing) thanks to recordings made for Dove Audio's unabridged book readings."

NEAT.

We fans also have the upcoming movie to look forward to. Will be interesting. Although being released/distributed by Disney, it is being produced by a British lot - which is essential. An American would get it wrong, it's too British. That's not as snobby as it sounds, it's just plain truth.

I'd just started re-reading the series too.


Mostly Harmless and So Long/Fish are my favourites.
