Episode Summary

Episode 1
Arthur Dent, a perfectly ordinary Englishman, is surprised to wake up one day to find bulldozers outside his house with orders to knock it down to build a bypass. Still in his pyjamas, he takes himself off to the pub, where he is even more surprised when his best friend, Ford Prefect, reveals that he is from a small planet in the vicinity of the star Betelgeuse. The two are forced to hitch a lift on one of the advancing Vogon spacecraft which proceed to blow up the Earth to make way for an interspace bypass. Our heroes soon find themselves trapped in a storage room in hyperspace, with only a menacing Vogon guard for company.moreless
