    The radio version is the canonical version as far as I care. My parents had it on tape and would listen to the whole thing on long car journeys. The SFX are fantastic :)

    I've still got the cassette box set of that somewhere. It says don't panic on it.
    One of the first things I heard on the radio where stereo was vital. I mean, even telly, films weren't stereo then.

    a_chap Welcome, my son. Welcome to The Machine.

    I think I should point out that I used to be the Vice President of the Zaphod Beeblebrox appreciation society.

    I only mention it now because, having Googled it, there's no mention of it on the internet at all :thumbs:

    We predated the internet by quite a few years. In fact we used to mimeograph the newsletters. (aka Roneo, Banda, Spirit duplicator for the Millenials here)

    I loved Bandaing, rotating the handle at just the right speed to get a print that wasn’t too feint, wasn’t too inky. Happy days

    You could print any colour you wanted as long as it was purple.
