We can't believe it either. The carnage of Robot Wars is coming back to BBC Two, promising "more battles and more science" as a new batch of tinkerers duke it out for the show's coveted title. The TV competition first aired in 1998 before being shifted to BBC Choice in 2001 and later to TV rival Channel 5. While the specifics of the new format haven't been detailed, the BBC says viewers can expect better robots and "a raft of technological advancements." Part of that will be a new arena in Glasgow that's "literally bullet proof" and lets spectators get closer to the action.
