First Air Date?
Started conversation Feb 22, 2009
Surely someone at the BBC knows the first air date for HHGG. It is usually given as 1978, but that cannot be. I first heard it on the World Service in Bangkok, Thailand, prior to 1975. My certainty comes from the fact that I listed on a home-built short-wave radio and from the cassette recordings I made. I left Bangkok in May, 1975, and I gave away the short-wave radio before I left. My estimate is 1973-1974.
Help! Was I in a time warp? Can If HHGG was first aired in 1978 (which it wasn't) can I claim authorship and sue Douglas Adams!?
