Subject: Hitch Hiker Movie - Request for Help

 From: (Douglas Adams)

We need to put together an irresistable package to excite potential
distributors of the movie of the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy (to be
produced by Michael Nesmith). To do that we need to be able to demonstrate
just how wide-reaching its impact has been in its different forms. Part of
this will just be statisitics on book sales and so on, but what we'd also
like to know is about all the other things that have happened. For instance
I've frequently heard stories of tv or radio stations putting out all the
shows back to back, but don't have any specific information about that.
There have been quite a few amateur stage productions, both in English and
in other languages. I've heard that many schools use the books to teach
from, and so on and so on and so on. Anything we can add to the list will be
very helpful. I'd like the info to be as specific and detailed as possible.

This would really help me. If you have any information please Email it to me
at, and make the subject 'HHGG Info' (so my mail program can
filter it). Please spread the word round as much as possible, other on-line
services, BBSs, fan groups. Feel free to cross post this message to any
other news groups where you think it will reach people who can help.

Thank you very much! This could have a significant impact on the project!
