‘Robot Wars’ has been axed by BBC again
    2018-03-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE show featuring duelling robots was rebooted on BBC Two in 2016 and ran for three series.

Presented by Dara ÓBriain and Angela Scanlon since its return, it is to be scrapped to “make room for new shows,” the BBC said.

A BBC spokesman said, “We are very proud of ‘Robot Wars’ and would like to thank Mentorn Media, the presenters Dara ÓBriain and Angela Scanlon, and all those involved in the last three series.

“However, in order to create room for new shows it won’t be returning to BBC Two.”

“Robot Wars” was originally broadcast on the BBC from 1998 until 2003, then on Channel 5 until 2004.

It had a peak audience of 6 million viewers in the U.K. during the late 1990s and became a worldwide success, showing in 45 countries including the United States, Australia, Canada, China, India, Germany and Italy.

After being axed, it came back to the BBC in 2016.

The series sees teams of roboteers, both amateur and professional, battle their home-constructed robots against each other in an arena.

Earlier series included assault and trial courses for competing robots.
