DOUGLAS ADAMS MEMORIAL DEBATE - 27th April 2006

Tickets are now available for the Douglas Adams Memorial Debate 2006, being held on April 27th, 2006 at "SCI-FI-LONDON 5" - the 5th London international festival of science fiction and fantastic film.

Presented by the INSTITUTE OF IDEAS, the debate is entitled "The Battle for the Future: who controls the future controls the present?".
