One of my earliest science fiction reading experiences was with Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, which essentially boils down to a science fictional retelling of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. But I whipped through these books like maniac, even going as far as to read all of Asimov’s Foundation, Robot novels (which Asimov loosely tied into the Foundation universe after-the-fact), and all related novels.
But the Foundation trilogy includes the books that started it all. Here is an old BBC radio adaptation of that trilogy, very loosely based on Asimov’s classic books.
