First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian Poll. Stranded on Prehistoric Earth since the end of the first series, Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are once again trying to hitch their way off the planet. Zaphod Beeblebrox, meanwhile, finds his visit to the offices of the Guide rudely interrupted by Frogstar fighters, who further threaten to feed him to the Total Perspective Vortex. Could this prove fatal for his ego? With the three reunited, Arthur's preoccupation with tea soon gets them all into hot water before they fetch up on the planet Brontitall. There they find an enormous guano-encrusted statue of Arthur, and an indigenous species in something of a flap. As a woeful story of economic collapse at the hands (feet?) of the shoe shop industry unfolds, Arthur meets Lintilla -- for whom fate has in store a very unhappy marriage -- and Marvin gets to be a hero once again. All this culminates in a meeting with the Man in the Shack who apparently runs the Universe.
