This latest visitation of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Tertiary Phase comes on heavyweight coloured vinyl,
sumptuously packaged in the style of the galactically successful Primary Phase and Secondary Phase LP releases.
For the first time ever on vinyl, here are Episodes 13 to 18 of the BBC radio series. First broadcast in 2004, the Tertiary Phase is based upon the Douglas Adams’s third novel Life, the Universe and Everything. This is also the first ever publication of the original radio edits of the Tertiary Phase, as heard on their original broadcast.
When Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect hitch a lift away from Prehistory on a Chesterfield sofa, it’s the beginning of a galactic quest that takes in Lord’s Cricket Ground, deadly cricket bat-wielding robots, a spaceship that looks like an Italian bistro, a planet of sentient mattresses, a wretched soul who keeps being murdered, a giant spaceborne computer, and much, much, more. Reunited with Marvin, Zaphod, Trillian and Slartibartfast, they must prevent the Krikkitmen from retrieving the Wikkit Key and unleashing terror upon the Universe.
Starring Peter Jones and William Franklyn as The Book, with Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox, Susan Sheridan as Trillian and Stephen Moore as Marvin the Paranoid Android, with a guest cast including Richard Griffiths, Leslie Phillips, Joanna Lumley, Toby Longworth, Michael Fenton Stevens, Henry Blofeld, Fred Trueman and the voice of Douglas Adams himself, with music by Philip Pope and Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens. Adapted, Directed and Co Produced by Dirk Maggs
Three 180g heavyweight yellow vinyl discs are presented in illustrated wallets inside a rigid, bound 20 page book, with exclusive sleeve notes written by producer Dirk Maggs and Jem Roberts, Douglas Adams’s official biographer.
