Michael Ahr Feb 11, 2019

On this day in 1938 R.U.R.: Rossum’s Universal Robots became the first sci-fi television show and influenced the medium for years to come.

By the time the British Broadcasting Corporation decided to air an excerpt from Czech playwright Karel Čapek’s R.U.R.: Rossum’s Universal Robots live from its Alexandra Palace studios on February 11, 1938, the play had already been around for 17 years, but the airing is notable not only as the first use of the word “robot” in popular culture but also as the premiere of the first science fiction television show ever.
