Here at SCI-FI-LONDON we love the latest science fiction… well, anything, comic books, movies, TV shows and of course audio.

But as well as enjoying new worlds and stories, we love classic old-time stuff. So, we have started collecting together some amazing audio and video sci-fi from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.  Scroll down to see some of the collections we have put together.

ROSSUM’S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS.

So you know the word ROBOT came from Karel Capek’s 1921 play right?   As a 3 hour long drama, it was probably great in 1921 but a bit long for a modern audience.   So, we updated the script and presented a rehearsed reading at the British Library in 2011.

The full performance was recorded live, click below to hear it.

OLD TIME RADIO:

Sit back, adjust your headphones and enjoy.

Here we present a collection of radio dramas that all have ROBOTS as the heart of their story.

Robots and androids have frequently been depicted or described in works of fiction. The word “robot” itself comes from a work of fiction, Karel Čapek’s play, R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) written in 1920 and first performed in 1921. It was also re-written for the festival by Ivor Benjamin and performed last at the British Library!
