On March 8, 1978, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy premiered on BBC radio. The Douglas Adams story was adapted to books, television, and a movie. There are several events to mark the occasion.

I was first introduced to the series though the books. I distinctly remember receiving one with the cover pictured here as a Christmas gift.

While I was searching for a suitable image here, I found old post about the 30th anniversary of HHGTTG. In it, pure gold: A link to the 30th Anniversary re-release of the text game… Have fun!

One thought on “Hitchhiker’s Guide Turns 42

  1. I’m remember first playing the game on an Apple IIc and being utterly frustrated by it. I tried it just now on the BBC site and so far so good … we’ll see how it goes. :)
