Earthman Arthur Dent is having a very bad day. His house is about to be bulldozed, he discovers that his best friend is an alien and to top things off, Planet Earth is about to be demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Arthur's only chance for survival: hitch a ride on a passing spacecraft. For the novice space traveler, the most astonishing adventure in the universe begins when the world ends. Arthur sets out on a journey in which he finds that nothing is as it seems: he learns that a towel is just the most useful thing in the universe, finds the meaning of life, and discovers that everything he needs to know can be found in one book: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
By a series of odd almost Guideian confluences, I ended up in the BBC studio in 1982 while the Startibartfast episode was being recorded. (e me for details). That's the bit were Norway is mentioned. I imagine that the movie will simply be the TV series with better effects. Though it's a damn shame that Peter Jones, the original droll narrator and very funny guy, died in 2000. He would surely have played the Book in the movie as well. And how perfectly Guideianly odd that both he and Adams never made it to the final cut. So long, a thanks for all the fish guys.
