OK - I'm starting to hear people saying they'd like to hear the entire tapes. So let's get an idea of how many people are interested. The tapes are long - 3 hours, roughly, in total, and are quite slow going. The interviewer (Ian Shircore) talks a fair bit, and Douglas's speaking style was slow and convoluted, and it can be hard-listening at times.

So, who's interested in hearing the whole thing, either unedited or judiciously edited?

I registered just to vote in this poll. I would love to hear the whole tapes in their entirety, the 3 hour length is not an issue. I wouldn't really mind if they were edited either, as long as no significant bits were cut and both the interviewer's questions and Adams' responses were left in.

Douglas left so few interviews and lectures recorded that any material should be released.

I'd be happy to pay for a copy.

I'd love to hear the full unedited version too. Douglas's meanderings are all part of his style. Obviously, we haven't heard the tapes so don't know what slow and convoluted entails but I'd still like to hear the full interview.

I agree with rucs_hack, there are so few that the interview should be available for posterity. Especially as it has a fairly young DNA. If you feel you must do an edited version then why not make both available?

I'm looking forward to hearing it!

Yes please, all of it.

Agree wholeheartedly that material of this type should be kept, archived, loved and listen to not just for fans now, but of the future. Who knows the inspiration it may give to a budding new writer?

At least one that can ignore the rushing sounds of deadlines of course.

Can I vote for both the unedited and the edited version?
I would _really_ like to hear the entire thing, but if I had an edited version, that would probably be the one I'd relisten to again and again after listening to the first readio show.

I'd love to hear the entire interview in unedited form, with all the ums and ers left right where Douglas put them.

Would love to hear the entire interview in either form. If you feel you can edit dead air time accordingly without removing any of DNA's comments then so be it. Personally I would prefer the unedited version but I understand the need for parring it down. If you need to edit, edit out the meandering interviewer, but don't edit out any of DNA ramblings (they are priceless).
