From rear cover notes: “…Now, published for the first time, here are the compelte, unedited scripts from the original BBC ‘Hitchhiker Radio Show,’ as broadcast in the United States on National Public Radio. It’s all here – Arthur Dent’s cosmic trek through the universe in its original form as Douglas Adams first conceived it! – with Ford Prefect, Arthur’s best buddy and cohort; Zaphod Beeblebrox, two-headed, three-armed ex-head honcho of the universe; Slartibartfast, award-winning coastline designer; Marvin, the paranoid android; and all the outrageous places and momentous events you’re fanatically devoted to. But that’s not all! You also get: -Douglas Adams’s worldly words ‘Where do you get all your ideas from?’; -Characters that have never appeared in any other Hitchhiker medium; -Previously censored material (usually cut for reasons of time, but…); -Behind-the-scenes notes about the production of the radio show that tell how the weird sound effects were created. Now you can read along with reruns of the show! Or, even better, put on Hitchhiker performances of your own!”
