Prophets of Science Fic­tion

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Us­ing film clips, in­ter­views and re-en­act­ments, di­rec­tor Ri­d­ley Scott ( Gla­di­a­tor, Black Hawk Down, Hannibal and Amer­i­can Gang­ster) looks at the history of science fic­tion au­thors and their im­pact on so­ci­ety. Ideas that once be­longed only in the imag­i­na­tion are now re­al­ity, the fu­ture is here. Scott ex­am­ines how au­thors such as Isaac Asimov ( I, ROBOT) turned out to be vi­sion­ar­ies, and how many of the things they de­scribed are now part of ev­ery­day life.
