Robot Wars, Series 8HD

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon host the brand-new series of Robot Wars with commentary from the legendary Jonathan Pearce who returns from the original series with his inimitable take on the robot battles. Filmed in a huge, purpose-built fighting arena in Glasgow, 40 teams of amateur robot fighting enthusiasts battle it out to become Robot Wars Champion 2016. Each episode has eight competing robots. The action starts with two group battles, with four robots in each battle. The top two robots from each group battle then go through to head-to-head battles where all four robots fight each other once. The top two then compete in the episode final - the winner going through to the Grand Final. If the robots don't knock each other out then the judges are on hand to decide the winners. Dr Lucy Rogers, Professor Noel Sharkey and Professor Sethu Vijayakumar base their criteria on aggression, damage and control - so everyone has to attack from the start. The arena contains the dangerous hazards of fire, spikes, the flipper and the iconic pit. As well as battling it out against each other, the robot teams must avoid the infamous and intimidating House Robots. Aiming to terminate anything that strays into their Corner Patrol Zone - Sir Killalot, Matilda, Shunt and Dead Metal show no mercy as they menacingly patrol the arena ready to destroy.
