Preview – Robot Wars

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present the new series of the metal-smashing show.

Tonight a returning robo mechanic finally gets a win, an old favourite from the original series tries to prove its doubters wrong and Robot Wars gets presidential with perhaps the world’s first satirical fighting robot.

The teams this week – Donald Thump, Behemoth, Sabretooth, Apollo, Apocalypse and The Swarm – are tasked with surviving brutal group battles and nightmarish knockout rounds in order to make it to the heat final.

Robot Wars, Sunday, 8 pm – BBC Two
