The h2g2 Aviators are a group of volunteers committed to providing audio-visual content for the h2g2 website. In February 2008 we decided that, rather than host our creations on a variety of commercial sites, we'd build our own site. We wanted to build something more in keeping with the spirit of h2g2 — a strictly non-commercial, authoritative site — rather than promote other sites by hosting our content on them. h2g2aviators.com is the result.
Foremost among the magical wonders you'll find here are our wonderful feeds:
The Guidecast, a collection of clips based on Entries written for the Edited Guide.
The new Beeblecast is a fledgling idea, created to provide audio and AV clips for other parts of the h2g2 site. You'll (eventually) find all sorts of creative writing, recipes and other assorted clips here.
Finally, h2gTunes is where you'll find music and songs written and performed by h2g2 Researchers.
Not only that, but you can subscribe to one or all of our feeds for regular updates on our clips.
We'll continue to build this site as we get new material and ideas, but for now — enjoy!

We felt it was very much in Adams' pioneering spirit to forge on and try to find new ways of innovating. And so the Aviators began; a project not to replace the written Guide, but to complement it by... (...more...)
Fantastic news, as we have made our first ever audio-only clip!
