Episode 1 was the first episode of the 2016 series of Robot Wars. First aired on 24 July 2016, it was the first new episode of Robot Wars for twelve years. It was the first of five qualification episodes which determined the Grand Finalists. It saw a new format with the Heats, with the introduction of a league table of head-to-head battles after the two Round 1 melees, the robots that gain the most points going onto the Heat Final, to decide who goes on to the Grand Final. The episode's original broadcast on BBC 2 drew two million viewers, around a 10% share of the potential audience.
