Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present this series of Robot Wars, with battles commentated by Jonathan Pearce. In this first explosive episode, a brand new spinner has something to prove and a family team pour blood, sweat and tears into keeping their robot wars dream alive.
Competing through brutal group battles and fierce head to heads for a place in the heat final are Aftershock, Nuts 2, Jellyfish, Rapid, Sabretooth, TMHWK, Terrorhurtz and Crank-E. They must dodge the arena hazards and the menacing new twist as house robots are unleashed to attack competitors and inflict maximum damage.
Robot Wars is a British game show modelled on a US-based competition of the same name. Teams of amateur and professional roboteers make their own robots to fight against each other in both friendly and tournament matches.
