If you haven't read the book, listened to the radio series or watched the TV series of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy then where on Earth have you been?

This release is one of a select collection of popular audio productions from the BBC that are taking advantage of the new MP3 CD format.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy comes on two discs. Disc one includes all episodes of the original radio series (originally available on six CDs), while disc two contains Douglas Adam's Guide to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - a behind-the-scenes look at the series, followed by an interview with Douglas Adams. The first feature has some great interviews with the original cast and crew from the radio series and the television show.

I was incredibly impressed by the £20 price tag for this collection. While I already owned the radio series on CDs this new release is incredible compact and I am sure this format will catch on incredible quickly. This release also has some incredibly detailed sleeve notes.

If you've never heard the original radio series then you really should get your hands on this. If you already own the series on CD I'd still recommend that you splash out (come on it's only £20) and purchase this.

An excellent new format and a fantastic release from the BBC. I can not recommend this collection enough.
