  • Robot Wars ist ein Anfang der 1990er Jahre in Großbritannien entstandenes Fernsehformat, bei dem selbständige Teams aus zwei bis drei sogenannten Roboteers mit ferngesteuerten Fahrzeugen in einer geschützten Arena gegeneinander antreten. Das Ziel der Roboter ist es, alle gegnerischen Roboter fahrunfähig zu machen. Als Waffen dienen dabei zum Beispiel mit Pneumatik angetriebene Umwerf-Mechanismen oder schwere, schnell rotierende Scheiben mit Mitnehmern. Für das Publikum entstehen dabei spektakuläre Szenen weshalb sich Robot Wars beim englischen Publikum größter Beliebtheit erfreut. Über 400 Teams mit Robotern gibt es in England, zum Teil auch Schulklassen, die im Rahmen eines Technikpraktikums einen Roboter bauen. (de)

Philippa Forrester co-hosted the show for the first three series, series five and Extreme 2. The fourth series and Extreme 1 were co-hosted by Julia Reed and the seventh series by Jayne Middlemiss. Jonathan Pearce provided commentary for all series. Additional series were filmed for specific sectors of the global market, including two series of Robot Wars Extreme Warriors with U.S. competitors for the TNN network (hosted by Mick Foley with Rebecca Grant serving as pit reporter), and two of Dutch Robot Wars for distribution in the Netherlands. The fourth series of the UK Robot Wars was brought to the United States on TNN as Robot Wars: Grand Champions in 2002, and hosted by Joanie Laurer. In 2003, the roboteers themselves formed The Fighting Robot Association and with their associated event organizers, carry on participating in competitions for new audiences. In 2013, Roaming Robots purchased the rights to the Robot Wars brand from Robot Wars LLC and now operates their travelling robotic combat show under that name. The series, centred on the sport of robot combat, involved teams of amateur and professional roboteers operating their own constructed robots to fight against each other in both friendly and tournament matches, whilst also avoiding arena hazards and more powerful "House Robots", which were not bound by the same weight or weapon limits as the contestants. Earlier series included assault and trial courses for competing robots before they were ceased from the first "Extreme" series onwards. With a peak audience of 6 million viewers in the UK during the late 1990s, the format went on to become a worldwide success, showing in 45 countries including the US, Australia, Canada, China, India, Germany and Italy. In March 2003, it was dropped by BBC Two after eight series and Mentorn announced it was making 22 episodes for Channel 5, concluding with the World Championships. Its merchandising was commercially successful; being one of the most popular selling toy ranges in 2002, it included a mini arena, pullback toys and radio-controlled versions of Shunt, Matilda and Sir Killalot. On 13 January 2016, the BBC confirmed that it would be rebooting the show for a six-part series. On 3 February 2016, BBC Press Office confirmed via Twitter that Dara Ó Briain will host the new series, with Angela Scanlon serving as pit reporter and Jonathan Pearce returning as commentator. (en)
