In 1992 when I was running my charity HOPE and making programmes for Hospital Radio, I met Douglas Adams, writer of the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. I only had approximately 20 minutes with him but my goodness did he give me a gem of an interview! I discovered he was very ahead of his time in being well in to Artifical Intelligence (A.I.), scientific exploration and ecology.
This is a transcription of the interview which you can also listen to in the Spoken Interview menu. Enjoy!
VW Douglas Adams welcome to HOPE you've written another excellent book called 'Mostly Helpless'.
DA Yes I've written another book, if you think it is excellent, I'm delighted its not for me to say (laughter) thank you very much.
VW It took you a long time to do this one though didn't it?
DA It did, it got very interrupted though by a number of things while writing the book. One of which was making a programme about writing the book for Melvin Braggs Show, which took several months out of my working schedule, and I also got married!
