Technology, Game show
Based on the classic series, "Robot Wars" returns with Dara O' Briain and Angela Scanlon as hosts, while original commentator Jonathan Pearce is back with his unique take on the arena's events. Amateur robot engineers bring their creations to fight it out in the arena. The robots are matched up by weight and specifications before they compete in tournament rounds. As the robots try to defeat their opponents, other House Robots -- which are not limited in size and strength - also join in, bringing another challenging element to the game. The new series includes a raft of technological advances since the show first aired more than a decade ago, and viewers can expect to see more innovative fighting machines as teams of roboteers battle it out to win the coveted Robot Wars title.
