A look at how ro­bots are tak­ing over main­stream arts and cul­ture, with the Scis­sor Sis­ters’ front­woman and DJ co-pre­sent­ing this episode along­side a real robot. Ana ex­plores how ro­bots are flex­ing their cre­ative mus­cles - hav­ing her por­trait done in a life-draw­ing class of sketch­ing ro­bots cre­ated by French artist Pa­trick Tres­set, and talk­ing to the elec­troa­cous­tic mu­si­cian Square­pusher about his re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with a robot band. She also meets New York-based cy­borg artist Neil Har­bis­son and dis­cov­ers how the Star Wars ro­bots have been brought to life for the big screen.
