Television: The whole week's been a balls-up

A FEW MINUTES ago, I strolled down to the corner shop and, as I went, realised that I had ballsed up the whole week. I had watched all the wrong things, and it was too late to do anything about it. The only thing left to do would be to apologise to readers and make the best of it. And if they responded by turning angrily to the Dance review, well, who could blame them?

Sexual hysteria

Televison: Today's pick

Robot Wars (6.25pm BBC2) Gladiators meets DIY in this surprisingly enjoyable new series, inspired by a format that apparently does good business in the States. Teams of enthusiasts build their own remote-controlled robots (wheelchair motors seem to be the favourite means of propulsion) and then pit them against in-house robots and each other. Weapons include adapted chainsaws, angle-grinders and - most effective of all in this first programme - a pneumatic "tongue" which flips opponents onto their backs. Master of ceremonies is Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson at his most camp. He's assisted by Robot Wars's answer to Ulrika Jonsson - Philippa Forrester - and, best of all, Channel 5's excitable football commentator Jonathan Pearce, who sends his trade up something rotten. Cult material, but it needs better scheduling.
