British writer Douglas Adams died suddenly on Friday at the age of 49. He is best known for The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy which started life as a radio play, then evolved into a series of best-selling books, a BBC television series, and a computer game. We hear an interview with him from 1982 that includes a selection of excerpts from the radio version of the Guide.
