Borrowed from redbird, this is a favoured SF/fantasy list. I do rather better on this one than the BBC list, not surprisingly.

Dune, Frank Herbert
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, Robert A. Heinlein
The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin
The Foundation Trilogy, Isaac Asimov
Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert A. Heinlein
The Stars My Destination, Alfred Bester
A Canticle for Leibowitz, Walter M. Miller Jr
Childhood's End, Arthur C. Clarke
Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card
Hyperion, Dan Simmons
Gateway, Frederik Pohl
The Forever War, Joe Haldeman
More Than Human, Theodore Sturgeon
Lord of Light, Roger Zelazny
Neuromancer, William Gibson
Startide Rising, David Brin
The Time Machine, H.G. Wells
The Man in the High Castle, Philip K. Dick
The Dispossessed, Ursula K. Le Guin
Stand on Zanzibar, John Brunner
Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
The Demolished Man, Alfred Bester
The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury
Starship Troopers, Robert A. Heinlein
Downbelow Station, C.J. Cherryh
Ringworld, Larry Niven
2001: A Space Odyssey, Arthur C. Clarke
The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells
Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury
The Mote in God's Eye, Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle
Way Station, Clifford D. Simak [don't think I've read this one]
Star Maker, Olaf Stapledon
Dying Inside, Robert Silverberg [have read odds and ends of Silverberg]
The City and the Stars, Arthur C. Clarke
Dhalgren, Samuel R. Delany [I have read some Delany - just not this one]
Rendezvous with Rama, Arthur C. Clarke
Mission of Gravity, Hal Clement
City, Clifford D. Simak
Cyteen, C.J. Cherryh
Flowers for Algernon, Daniel Keyes
Double Star, Robert A. Heinlein
Earth Abides, George R. Stewart [and I'm afraid I thought it was dreadful]
The Door Into Summer, Robert A. Heinlein
Last and First Men, Olaf Stapledon
Ubik, Philip K. Dick
Norstrilia, Cordwainer Smith [disappointing]
The Witches of Karres, James H. Schmitz
Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
Have Space Suit -- Will Travel, Robert A. Heinlein
Time Enough for Love, Robert A. Heinlein
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Philip K. Dick
The Gods Themselves, Isaac Asimov
"Riverworld" series, Philip Jose Farmer (four volumes) [I have certainly read some, but perhaps not all]

This list pings my "but there's so much they've left out!" buttons a lot more than the BBC list did. No Pratchett; not much Brunner; no Marion Zimmer Bradley... hm. It's really much more biased towards SF than fantasy.
