Nineteen Ninety Four was a rather fun BBC radio comedy drama that took 1984 and dumped it in a future ultra-privatised Britain, where everything was run by the Ministry of the Environment. It was witty, literate, and very very funny. It was followed up a sequel, Nineteen Ninety Eight and a couple of novels.
One of its high lights was the shoddy servant robot, The Fetcher. It wasn't very stable - and would beedle-beedle around the room, go clunk, and then announce "I've fallen over". One scene in a high class restaurant had a waiter Fetcher point out "Merde, je suis tombée!".
