The original radio cast of Douglas Adams's comic sci-fi creation The Hitchhiker's Guide tT The Galaxy return to where it all began... BBC Radio 4.

Some of the most enduring characters ever created for radio will be heard in a special live transmission from London's Radio Theatre, as part of Radio 4's Character Invasion day.

The two-headed smooth-talking alien Zaphod Beeblebrox, bemused Earthling Arthur Dent, and Marvin the Paranoid Android will relive some of their adventures, with a very special appearance by the original producer John Lloyd as The Voice of the Book.
