| Very close to the original radio show
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...
