It's Back............

Post by ACTIVE8 »

Well I remember a certain programme, which has as we are petrol/diesel heads on here, and thus have an interest in mechanical things, has been mentioned here before at times in various threads, it has even been repeated on Dave, like a lot of things.

Although now it has been rebooted and brought back to life. 8-)

I enjoyed watching the original, and had heard about the fact it might come back, so I am pleased that they went ahead with it.

It has also been put on at the old Top Gear time slot.

So tonight 24th July 2016 on BBC2 @ 20.00 hrs we see the return of Robot Wars. 8-)

It is now presented by Dara O Briain, and Angela Scanlon who looks very nice with Dara, and the programme returns after a twelve year break.

Let The Games Begin!

Thanks jgra1

Well now having seen the second episode, and after getting used to how subtly different it is, it is great to see it back, and they obviously looked after the "House" robots, during the time they have been away, and given how much they must have cost I am not surprised, in fact they might have had some technical upgrades, and certainly the competitors have brought in different robots with different ideas, and some older ones have returned.

As they say on the programme.
