Preview – Robot Wars

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon

In the first of two specials, the best robots in Britain take on the machines that the rest of Europe has to offer.

Representing the British are flipper Apollo, spinner Sabertooth, axe-bot Terrorhurtz and mace-bot Gabriel 2. However, it would appear that the European robots are of more interest, particularly as a classic veteran is back in the field. From Ireland, the polka-dot fur clad Diotoir is back, and will no doubt will turn into cinders for our entertainment. One suspects that Irish hosts Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon will be backing them.

Robot Wars is on BBC Two at 20.00.
