When the Earth is destroyed a Vogon Demolition Fleet to make way for a new hyperspace bypass, Arthur Dent joins his friend Ford Prefect (who turns out to be a researcher for an electronic reference guide called the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) for a galactic voyage on which they meet Zaphod Beeblebrox, a two-headed ex-President of the Galaxy, and his human companion, Trillian. Their journey takes them from the remains of Earth to Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Based on a radio play by Douglas Adams. Written by

The BBC TV version of Hitch hikers' is very much in the spirit of the radio show's style and production, as well as having quite a few radio cast members in the "movie".
Typically cheesy BBC video effects, (some seemingly straight off of the Dr. Who production set) are the mainstay of this show's visuals, although there are some surprisingly good animated/still graphics of "the book"'s content, and the costumes, makeup, and sets are better than many BBC sci-fi productions.
If you don't mind the typical BBC TV look of the video it is well worth watching, and probably easier to find these days than a copy of the radio shows...
