H2G2 movie exhibition at Blackpool zoo (UK)

The H2G2 movie science museum exhibition is at the Blackpool zoo (UK) since last february. There have not been much informations about it. But this is good news for the guys who missed the science museum exhibition and are going to be in UK this summer. Don't miss the exhibition. You can see pictures of the event here (thanks to Ol' Peculier on forums ).

There is also a merchandise shop online where you'll be able to buy some funny stuff (including some exclusive stuff i've seen nowhere else) HERE You can also buy there some Dian Fossey Gorilla merchandise (as you know Douglas Adams supported this association).

Stephen Fry involved in a Dirk Gently movie or LCTS TV series ???

here has been a nice chat with Stephen Fry on Lot of nice questions and witty answers from Stephen Fry.
There was quite an interesting answer about a possible Dirk Gently movie :
"Well Robbie Stamp, an old mucker of DNA's who ran Digital Village with him and exec prodded HHGG wants to make it as a movie and has tentatively asked if I would be interested in either playing Dirk or writing-directing or all three, or both or any permutation thereof.... Am currently rereading DG with this in mind...."
Rumours about a Dirk Gently's movie or a DG TV series is no new stuff but it's still great news to know that it's still alive in the mind of such guys as Robbie Stamp whose implication was decisive to make the H2G2 movie after Douglas' death. Let's remember too that a Dirk Gently radio series is still being considered.
Another nice answer about a possible new implication of Stephen Fry with Douglas Adams' universe (Last Chance to See to be accurate) was this one :
In reply to "anotherchancetosee" question : "I am in discussions with Mark Carwardine about doing a TV series with your handle as its title. Using Douglas's audiobook version of ACTS as a guide for us as we investigate how the various species are doing nearly 20 years on. The Yangste River Dolphin now officially extinct, for example.... ".
It would be great to have Stephen Fry involved in such projects. Well we can still cross our fingers and hope... Meanwhile read the chat transcript HERE
