The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy


GB, 1981
di Alan Bell
Sceneggiatura Douglas Adams – Interpreti David Dixon, Simon Jones, Mark Wing-Davey

The radio series by Douglas Adams, broadcast in 1978, uniting humour with extreme surrealism and science fiction, immediately become a cult hit. Two more books and a second series of radio shows were born from this success, but the idea of a television adaptation and therefore the attempt to visualise Adams’ cosmi-comic creations, filled fans with anticipation. The result turned into a television cult. The series tells the story of the adventures of Ford Prefect, a writer for the Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy and his Earth friend Arthur Dent, forced to wander the depths of space following the destruction of Earth, which was necessary for the construction of a new interplanetary highway.
