MJS: Douglas Adams is famous for being very, very late with his writing.Read full interview
PJ: "Yes, he was. He was very late. Twice I turned up at the studio on the appointed day and there was no script so I was sent home."
MJS: It’s said that Douglas wanted a Peter Jones type voice but tried several people before he thought of Peter Jones. Were you aware of that at the time?
PJS: "(laughs) No, no."

PETER JONES - Interview with MJ Simpson
Just stumbled upon this nice archive interview of Peter Jones by MJ Simpson. Peter Jones was, of course, the voice of "The Book" in the original BBC "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and also contributed Book-like narration for the radio series of "Last Chance To See".
