"This is Robot Wars Revealed, where we put on the camouflage, go deep undercover and delve behind the trenches of Robot Wars. We discover what life is like in the pits, we dig the dirt with the contenders' own video diaries, and come up for air in the arena, to witness revving chainsaws and clashing steel."
— Philippa Forrester's introduction
Robot Wars Revealed was a spin-off series of the British television game show Robot Wars. It was originally broadcast from 1998 to 1999 on BBC Choice, around the same time as The Second Wars. The series was presented by Philippa Forrester, and featured behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the robots featured in the Series 2 heats, as well as setting up trials, like Joust. It also featured highlights of each battle in each respective heat, although whilst the battle music can be heard, Jonathan Pearce's commentary is notably absent.
Most of the series is considered to be lost media, as only one recording of the spin-off show has resurfaced online, with the episode based upon the behind-the-scenes of Heat I and Heat G surviving as of 2018. This is out of a total of 14 episodes, or fifteen if the listed programme "Chill on Choice" on the Genome backlog is counted.
"They went out on (the then new) BBC digital TV service [BBC Choice] to entice people into getting digital set top boxes. Thing is- hardly anyone had bought them at that time."
