Robot head

From the novel by Isaac Asimov. In the subterranean New York of the far future, detective Elijah Baley must overcome his deep-rooted prejudice and work with a robot partner to solve an impossible murder.

With Ed Bishop, Sam Dastor and Matt Zimmerman. Produced and directed by Matthew Walters. Ninety minutes.

It was rare for leading US science fiction author Isaac Asimov to grant dramatic rights in his books, so we were lucky that he authorised this. I remember sending him a copy of the recording and waiting anxiously for his reaction. Fortunately, he liked it.
