Description: This file contains samples from the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy BBC Radio series. The sound effects were literally ground-breaking, with many of them taking days to perfect - followed by axing them for something even wilder.

I've scanned both series (all six hours) for useful sounds, and feel I've been fairly thorough - I have some sounds left over, which I *could've* put in, but I just ran out of spaces to put them in :-) (Fans of the series may like to know that I *ached* over whether or not to sample the lift scene for the lift sound - that was going a bit far though).

This is strictly silly, and should *never* be used for serious Dooming, having the same effect on the atmosphere as 4 Commander Keen's hanging on nooses >;-) Some of the sounds are quite long, and others (esp. the "Naughty" sound) have been deliberately included to annoy the hell out of you after 2 minutes.
Credits: Acknowledgements go to Douglas Adams, the BBC, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and the actors whose voices I took - Simon Jones, Peter Jones, Steven Moore, and some others whose names I have forgotten.
