BBC Radio 4 extra have five of the I,Robot stories in their 15 Minute Drama series.
Not quite as Asimov wrote them but still faithful.

I recently bought a copy of Harlan Ellison's screenplay treatment for I, Robot - what a movie that never made :-( The Will Smith thing has absolutely nothing to do with it. Elllison wrote it with Asimov's oversight.

I caught a couple of the episodes. They are definitely worth a listen.

They did an omnibus edition which may still be on iPlayer. I listened to each episode but I think the omnibus may work better.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
