 “Technology is the word we use to describe things we don’t understand.”

---- Douglas Adams


"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" originally was a 1978 BBC radio series, written by Douglas Adams, which first premiered in the US on PBS radio in 1980.  The subsequent TV show (available on DVD) recreates the insight and beauty of the radio broadcast with visuals that were precognizant and beyond “state of the art.”  The book of the same name was actually a transcript of the original audio.  The book pales by comparison to the original radio episodes because of the genius of the audio effects.  (The 2005 movie version was an abomination.)
