Exploring the Future of Robotics

Calling all tech enthusiasts and science fiction lovers! BBC FOUR presents a rare documentary, “Towards Tomorrow: Robot,” originally aired in 1967. Step into a time capsule and witness the predictions and possibilities of robotics in shaping our future society.

The documentary raises thought-provoking questions about the development of robots and their potential impact on our daily lives. How close are we to creating the robot of the future? Could every household eventually have their own robot companion? And perhaps most intriguing, how human-like will these robots appear?

Isaac Asimov, the legendary science fiction writer and visionary of the robot age, serves as a guide throughout the program. With his insightful commentary, he delves into a future where humans and robots coexist harmoniously. Asimov envisions a culture where robots are not just mere helpers, but also friends that humans can deeply connect with. Asimov was somewhat obsessed with robots, with human like ones appearing in many of his stories,

The documentary offers an exploration of the progress made by scientists and engineers in turning Asimov’s science fiction into reality. Through this glimpse into the past, we have the opportunity to marvel at the advancements made in the field of robotics and reflect on how far we have come since 1967.
