Good news for HHGTTG fans!

Don't panic - it's back!
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is back on Radio 4 - 25 years after it first started. The BBC has officially announced that the sci-fi comedy will return on 21 September for a new six-part series. Most of the original cast - including Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern and Mark Wing-Davey - are reunited for the new episodes, which will air as a Hollywood film of the book nears completion.

Even author Douglas Adams will feature in the new radio episodes: he made recordings for a character called Agrajag a few years before his death in 2001. The programmes are based on Adams's last three books: Life, the Universe and Everything; So Long and Thanks for All the Fish; and Mostly Harmless. Another new series is scheduled for broadcast next spring.
