Sorry, Traveller, it's BBC Policy to only run competitions that will benefit the licence fee payers.

Still, only a couple of weeks to go now...

"It is not even possible for people abroad to become a licence fee prayer. I even tried to buy a television last Easter, just to obtain a registration, but they would not let me smiley - weirdsmiley - sadface."

Actually - it wouldn't be a good idea for me to enter with a UK address...Too many hootooers know me and where I am - If I won I'd probably be lynched the next time I met any of them smiley - run

It also doesn't seem to be of benefit to anyone who's outside the M25. As much as I'd love to enter the competition there's no way if I won the prize that I'd be able to book a day off work, travel from Manchester and get a roof over my head for the night at an affordable price with less than 24 hours notice.

Think I'll take my chances with getting tickets for the free advance screening on the 26th that Empire are currently offering their readers.

Well that answers my question from months ago - will h2g2 researchers get a chance to go to the premiere.

I see this as a last minute (and last minute given the official go ahead) bonus for those who are fortunate enough to be able to make it, and lucky enough to be drawn from the hat.

Not fair really to be upset that they won't pay for the smiley - popcorn so to speak smiley - 2cents

I am glad I left Briton
I don't ever want to see a film of the Guide. The pictures were infinitely better on the radio.

No employees of the BBC, or their immediate families. Naturally.

I know I've seen it, but still...smiley - wah

"Would a not so dedicated fan make sense of it? That is what I am a bit concerned about. All previewers are insiders and I can imagine they had to leave out most of the explainations."

I'm not a 'dedicated fan', and I loved it.

"Some or the reviews suggested something like that.

Well, it is not a good bedtime story for the kids, as I discovered. smiley - biggrin"

Well Natalie works here and unless I am very much mistaken she never was a previous fan (although apologies if I am getting mixed up with Abbi or another italic smiley - doh) and she has seen the film.

So I think it is fare to say that some non-42ers have been privvy to the preview.

Everybody will have a different opinion on it and I look forward to the varied reviews and thoughts that follow. smiley - smiley

Of course I plan to go see it with the Scottish Researchers Group smiley - biggrin as a celebration of Towel Day. And it looks like Mina will be coming along too!!

Well the SRG have never been known to miss out on an opportunity to have a celebration smiley - winkeye

You can call me TC

Love the typo in Post 4:

"licence fee prayer"

Am also considering doing Whisky's trick. Will need a convincing e-mail address as well, though. Or my sister could do it for me (she's more likely to win anyway) - and give me the ticket when she's won smiley - winkeye. That wouldn't even be illegal.

So long as you could get to your sister for her to hand the ticket over to you, that could work smiley - smiley

Beatrice: I like Tuesdays, I do.

Well even though I still pay UK taxes, there's no way I could make it to London on that sort of short notice.smiley - sadface

But I'll make sure Reddyfreddy and SarahLMH enter, then I can enjoy it somewhat, albeit vicariously.

Good luck everyone!

smiley - star
