The Tertiary, Quandary and Quintessential Phases.

The remaining books in Douglas Adams' 'Hitchhiker's' masterpiece as finally dramatised for radio, where it all began.

Twenty-five years after the original radio series of 'Hitchhiker's' exploded into the public consciousness, the further exploits of its bewildered hero Arthur Dent have been adapted for radio by Dirk Maggs, in part using drafts written by Adams before his death.

These scripts brilliantly bring to life the last three books in Adams' perennially popular 'Hitchhiker' series: Life, The Universe And Everything, So Long And Thanks For All The Fish and Mostly Harmless. Notes from Dirk Maggs highlight Adams' original material and explain how the cast, special effects and music were directed. The scripts also include a foreword by Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent in both the original and recent radio series, as well as in 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' television series.These scripts exemplify the freshness of perspective, humour and perspicacity that epitomise the work of Douglas Adams. They will be loved by fans and those new to 'Hitchhiker's' alike.
