Well, we've talked about it in various threads: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6812&highlight=hitchhikers ...and we know it's coming to the USA on VHS in Spring 2002: http://www.bbcamericashop.com/default.asp?cpa=product&rpa=2&id=184&mdm=Videos%2FDVD But "Hive4Media", the website which Video Store Magazine is based out of, now has in their on-line buying guide for retailers a listing for a Region 1 HHGttG DVD! Click on the VSM logo to see: http://www.hive4media.com/buying_guide/scripts/bg_title_details.cfm?id=9549&format=3&nextstart=541 It shows a pre-book date (the day retailers must finalize their orders) of 4/2/02. While a street date isn't shown on that detail page, this listing page here shows a street date of 4/30/02!! Sometimes Hive4Media gets their format info mixed up, and say DVD when it is really VHS. But since the list price here is shown as $10 higher than the BBC America page shows the list for the VHS, I suspect that this really IS a new DVD item that BBC America hasn't updated on their site yet! Sorry to babble on so long, but I'm excited beyond words! But I shall try really hard to remember the two most important words of all: ...DON'T PANIC!
