One of the funniest radio shows I have heard to date, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy was written by the late Douglas Adams, who died in 2001. It ran from early 1978 on and off until 1980. Douglas Adams went on to write a hugely successful book series based on the radio show and more, with the first five being The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy; The Restraunt At The End Of The Universe; Life, The Universe And Everything; So Long And Thanks For All The Fish and Mostly Harmless. I have recently bought a copy each of the first 2 Phases of the radio show which were the original radio broadcasts. The rest of the radio broadcasts were only recently adapted from the later books.
