Don't Panic. If you have never read /listened to or watched hitch-hikers guide to the galaxy you will not know what I am talking about but if you have you will.

I took it to the till and nearly passed out when the person behind the till said £17.99 please. Well it is three cds long. All I could say is brill.

The HHGTTG was, originally, a radio comedy drama, scriped by Douglas Adams himself, before being turned into a series of books, and a TV show. This box of two tapes or three CDs captures the first half of the HHGTTG radio saga, and on the first listen you can see how it became such a phenomenon. The writing and scenarios are superb, if a little wacky, and the humour is always spot-on. The plot revolves, as in the ... Read the complete review

Well, I was 15 when I firststarted listening to this series,as my dad got me it as an Xmas present. Now, it hs been replacedtwice and put on to my mp3 I enjoyed it so much.
