  • ROBOT WARS PRESENTER LINE UP REVEALED AND NEW LOGO IS UNVEILED

    ROBOT WARS PRESENTER LINE UP REVEALED AND NEW LOGO IS UNVEILED

    Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon will be the new presenters of Robot Wars when the series is rebooted for BBC Two, it was announced today.

    Dara and Angela will report on all the action from the new purpose-built fighting arena in Glasgow, which will allow viewers to get even closer to the action, with state-of-the-art cameras capable of capturing every crushing, sawing and scorching moment in incredible detail.

    Dara O Briain said: 'I am thrilled to be presenting Robot Wars. For too long, the schedules have cried out for a show in which dedicated amateurs toiling day and night, handcraft sophisticated automatons built on the delicate interplay of hand-wired servo motors with custom-built circuit boards and fingertip motion control, just to see them get smashed to pieces by a dustbin carrying a massive hammer. It's war, and how I love it so.'

    The new six-part series will be produced by Mentorn Scotland, part of the Tinopolis Group, in association with SJP Media, and will feature a new structure with more robots, more battles and more science than ever before. It also includes a raft of technological advances since the show first aired over a decade ago, and viewers can expect to see more innovative fighting machines as teams of amateur roboteers battle it out to win the coveted Robot Wars title.
