Cally writes "I just heard a new programme trailer on BBC Radio 4 for the the first time. Some familiar voices... it's Arthur! It's Ford! It's the new radio series of Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy! The first broadcast goes out on Tuesday 21st September at 6:30pm (UK summertime, which is an hour off UTC.) Douglas Adams wrote the books in parallel with the two original radio series, which are still regarded as the definitive manifestation of HH-erdom. Hearing Mark Wing-Davey and Simon Jones' voices speaking new words - albeit new words from 'Life, The Universe and Everything' - is a spooky feeling. I just hope the sad death of Peter Jones does not detract from the final result. Let's hope the Beeb's live streaming media setup can cope with the mother of all Slashdottings!"
