    The BBC Radio drama production of Karel Capek's play, set in a future when all the work in our society is carried out by robots manufactured by Rossum's Universal Robots. Feeling sorry for the emotionless robots, the headstrong Helena persuades the company to factor emotion into them. The robots' new-found consciousness leads them to revolt against their masters, and the resulting catastrophe makes for a highly suspenseful and thought-provoking drama. Simon Ward and Tessa Peake-Jones star.

    "Das Jahr des Gärtners" ist Hörspaß erster Güte. Oliver Rohrbeck reckt den grünen Daumen und leiht seine Stimme einem der Klassiker der Garten-Literatur. Karel Capek berichtet darin auf ironisch-augenzwinkernde Art vom Schicksal des Gärtners, niemals zur Ruhe zu kommen. Das Wetter ist grundsätzlich zu trocken oder zu nass. Gegen Nachbars Wildwuchs müsste man eigentlich ein Gesetz erlassen. Und natürlich liegen Feinde wie Amseln, Kinder und Schnecken immer auf der Lauer.

    The initials stand for Rossum's Universal Robots. This Czech play, first produced in 1921, introduced the word "robot" into the world lexicon. The Rossum factory robots are so human that a well-meaning beauty travels to R.U.R.'s island headquarters to liberate them. She ends up fomenting more revolution than the human race can handle.

    Cette guerre inventée entre l'homme et l'animal c'est, en 1936, tout ce que le monde embrase : le nazisme, l'antisémitisme, la croyance dans le progrès ; ce livre brosse avec humour une satire des hommes et de leur société. Mêlant la parodie au fantastique, à la fois roman et conte philosophique, il se révèle, sous une apparente légèreté, extrêmement lucide et sombre. Étonnamment perspicace quant au devenir de l'Europe quelques années plus tard, "La Guerre des Salamandres" anticipe également les problèmes écologiques.
