The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy | 1982
Seconds before the Earth is destroyed, Ford Prefect, an alien being from the galaxy Betelguese and a field researcher for "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," rescues Arthur Dent, a somewhat bewildered Englishman, from the impending doom. As the Earth is destroyed by a Vogon construction fleet to make way for a new hyperspace bypass, Ford and Arthur are transported to one of the cabins of the Vogon ship.
Soon, they are ejected from the Vogon ship -- and thus begin a series of intergalactic adventures as they become hitchhikers in space. Based on a BBC radio comedy series.
