The Babel Fish is real!
Just stick it in your ear
Babel Fish

Such a shame Douglas Adams isn't around to see his off-the-wall idea become reality.

There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes
If you can imagine it it can be invented!!

Even more shameful was the second series of Hitchhikers never being made, the reason for which is to be found in A hitch in the galaxy - the making of a legend by Alan J W Bell. It's a superb book packed with photographs that I hadn't seen before and a very insightful text by Alan, the definitive work on the subject.
What was the reason please

John Howard Davies sent a memo to all production departments, the cancellation of the second series was "due to the author's inability to write it"……

This book also confirmed my views about Douglas Adams' personality and originality (or lack of) as a writer. There's a lot of detail about the original production that the contrived interviews on the 'Making of' DVD doesn't touch on, for instance the attempts to frustrate and sabotage the production by a few working it, working against the petty attitudes of the BBC, and then there are the personal successes and triumphs of one sort and the other. The disgraceful treatment of Alan J W Bell by certain individuals was quite shocking too.

There are some great photographs in the book and on page 106 is a real treat for those whom like the magic of TV…. Jim Francis setting up that outstanding and convincing hanging miniature shot of the Heart Of Gold, the precursor to the equally convincing shot of the Scorpio in the episode Star Drive.
There is also a funny story concerning Derek Meddings in the book too, I am not going to say anymore as I don't want to spoil the enjoyment of the book for those whom may wish to purchase it, it is well worth every penny.
