Description

Douglas Adams explains how and why the animated "computer graphics" sequences of the Hitchhiker's Guide TV series really worked. Includes footage from behind the scenes at the animation company and from the BBC studio floor in 1980, where an ingenious contraption gave the Guide its imagery in that pre-digital age. (Animation images courtesy of Rod Lord - http://www.rodlord.com/pages/hhgg.htm) This video was made by Kevin Jon Davies from his own archive for screening at HitchCon at The Royal Festival Hall, London, 2009. It also appeared on the Penguin Books website... http://www.6of3.com/authors/douglas-adams
