​not sure what your issue is ? The TV documentary was about a man & his organisation being inspired to serve selflessly by the principles his religion has taught him . Surely that's positive no matter who/what there religion is. Sounds like your not happy with the Sikh Religion , & I can't understand why ?
All I can suggest is maybe you should start a humanitarian charity , & hope that a TV channel wants to explore the principles that inspired u . If not stop, creating negativity & lets celebrate those who are trying to make the world a slightly better place!
ChrisOm thanks for such a great comment

I presume it was meant for Burmingum....

Your suggestion about starting an humanitarian work only works for those individual who are humble and do it selflessly and not get for recognition.

Rav has been now doing it for 17yrs and hardly asked for any thing back. He has been and still leaves his own wife and young kid/s to help others leaving his child/ren wonder where is dad. He could have just shut him self out the destructive world and stayed home and worked to provide for his family. And I would say it is not he choose it but destiny choose him seeing what he had in him.

Some one like me just looks at him and say good for nothing and has wasted half of his life, not seen his kids grow up, and that's why I haven't got up and did it myself.

His team are not good for nothing like me but professionals like Lawyers, IT Engineers Doctors who also are following the trailblazer Ravi. One day he could come home in a coffin and he knows it, I cant brave it, but that is his buzz.

I hate any sort of intolerance and wrong impressions given by some individuals be it who ever.

There is a post on Mahabhart given here and the OP commented about nudity and I was compelled to leave a comment about who this about, the Great Lord Krishna.

ChrisOm once more thanks and Please keep up the good work of spreading the good word that
'Recognise All Human Beings As One!'

Burmingum....

With due respect this post is nothing to do with independence of any sort so why did you bring this into it...

I would kindly request you to please delete your comments and save them for laters as it invites hatred and all we should do is join hands look forward and eliminate this hatred.

Otherwise I would kindly request one of the MODS to delete Burmingum it please.

Good find, though this is only the first series. Anyone seen the complete series for sale on CD?

If you got a library card ,your local library will probably be a member of overdrive where you can download the mp3 versions for free. My library also has on cd if you wish to check yours . I orgionally had this on cassette but wore it out.

Grand final

The House Robots:
Sir Killalot, Matilda, Shunt and Dead Metal are confirmed back with major improvements. Killalot is apparently A LOT bigger. They've toned down Matilda's Flywheel a little so it doesn't instakill anything it touches. Apparently Dead Metal looks really impressive and has a larger saw blade.
Mr. Psycho, Sgt. Bash, Growler, Cassius Chrome and the refbot are confirmed out. Major Damage (the sole house robot in the untelevised series since the show got cancelled) isn't confirmed either way but I'm assuming it's out as it is officially retired and apparently up for sale.

The Competitors:


Beast - Chronic under a new name with improvements. Gas powered flipper.
Behemoth - Long time veterans. Powerful robot with a bucket scoop and axe. I don't what improvements will be made.
Big Nipper - Veterans of 2 previous wars. Jaws which crush and can also lift. No news of any improvements.
Bonk - Participated in the last televised series with a flipper, Mute. They're back with an axe bot. Interchangeable weaponry, apparently.
Carbide - I know nothing about this apart from it's apparently pretty destructive.
Chompalot - More veterans returning. Chompalot has a vertical crushing jaw and looks like a dragon. I've not heard of any improvements.
Crazy Coup 88 - Never heard of this robot. Nor can I find any info.
Dantomkia - 2x series semi finalists. Gas powered flipper. No news on updates.
DisConstructor - Competed in season 7. High powered sloped spinning disc.
Draven - It's only appearance was in robot wars extreme. It had a vertical crushing beak which could also lift. From what I've heard though, this is a brand new robot and bares little resemblance to its original incarnation.
Eruption - Gas powered flipper that has performed well on the untelevised circuit for the last 3 years.
Foxic - Experienced team but mainly competed in antweight and featherweight. This by all accounts is an axe bot. I know nothing more.
Gabriel - This robot has made a name for itself on the untelevised circuit. It has 2 massive wheels with are very lightweight with a massice hammer that constantly slams in both directions like a pendulum when the robot moves. Watch out for this one- it's fun. However since spinners were banned on the untelevised circuit as the arenas weren't safe enough to accomodate them, it's yet to be seen how it'll hold up.
Infernal Contraption - Veterans of 2 series. Drum bot with 2 wheels and a vertical disc. I've been informed this robot has been heavily updated since its last appearance.
Ironside III - I've only seen a picture of the shell while it was being built. It looks like a full body spinner but I can't confirm that.
Kan Opener J-Spec 2x Anihilator champions returning with the latest version of their crab bot. Horizontal jaws are the norm but they've apparently taken to the interchangeable weaponry on the untelevised circuit.
Killie-Krankie - Can't find any info on this bot apart from they're new to Robot Wars.
King B Remix - Long time veterans returning with much of the same, from the looks of it. They say they've made major upgrades but the bot looks the same as King B Powerworks. Powerful pushing bot with a low centre of gravity. Also interchangeable weaponry including forklift and vertical spinning disc.
M R Speed Squared - All I know is this is a spinning bot.
Nuts - No info on this one.
PP3D - All I know is when it was first built it was a spinner. No info on robot or team.
Pulsar - Can't find any info on this bot.
Razer - Former World and UK champions. They're entering an updated version of Razer as Warhead is under an exclusive battlebots contract (Razer is better anyway). There have been internal updates but will apparently look the same and work in the same way. Devastating vertical crushing beak.
Sabretooth - Veterans of series 5 & 6. Was a drum bot with a vertical spinning disc. I have no idea how much it will resemble the original, if at all.
Shockwave - Only made 1 appearance in extreme and looked terrible. I'm assuming this is a new build.
Storm II - Controversial runners up of the last televised series. Powerful ram bot with pneumatic lifting arm.
Sweeny Todd- Not been able to find any info on this.
Terrorhurtz - Long time veterans who've been very active on the untelevised circuit. Devestating double edged axe bot. Entered with Terrorhurtz because their newest robot, Beta is under an exclusive contract with battlebots.
Terror Turtle -Veterans of series 7 returning. Turtle shell bot with horizontal spinning bar. No word on any upgrades.
The General -There was a robot of this name in the series 3 robot wars football tournament, but I doubt it's the same robot. No idea what to expect.
Thermidor II - Flipper that looks like a lobster (claws were purely decorative). Good to see them back, former grand finalists.
Thor - Veteran axe bot that has continued to improve since the show was cancelled.
Tough As Nails - Grab bot. Horizontal claws that clasp. Great pushing power once they're sunk in. Favours the pit in finishing fights.
TR2 - Heavily armoured gas powered flipper. Has won events on the untelevised circuit, including the fighting robots championship last year.
Three robots who have been linked are Iron Awe 7, Atomic and Barberous 3 but they've not been confirmed on the show so I'll not jump the gun on those.

I've heard this. It's good and has quite a different slant from the film.
Brilliant but short. I remember printing this book off at work before the movie came out so I could read it, then I done another for a friend, what a waste of paper!

No if you check blue peter/BBC site it will tell you which applies...some are one adult per two children...as I said earlier over the years they have changed the terms and some years back there were no restrictions as to how many adults per child/ children. If you want one for the summertime, apply early or Asaph as they take ages to arrive.

Most Merlins were great. London Aquarium thought for a while. Tussards no probe. Not Merlin ..... Ripples believe or not .... No chance of getting 2 in.

Ooh sorry forgot to say - the numbers signed up that Michael mentioned - they sound daunting, but what actually happens is you get hundreds of people doing the first few segments, and then when they realise they actually have to work a bit and provide input and show some background knowledge, tons of them just melt away... By the end of week 1, there were only a couple of hundred who were consistently contributing. Which was nice!
I've heard that UEA are so strong on these subjects, I'm impressed that you have already built up really practical experience. I have to say I envy you (even the boring Theory - which will pay off in the long run because you will be so familiar with the ground rules of your profession)! Just by doing your course, you are meeting and networking with people (like the leaders of this online course) who will be useful to you when you're out furthering your career. I wish you the very best of luck - sounds like you are really making the most of it! :-)
If I had the ability to drop everything in my life and study full time (and could afford the fees!) I would defo pick UEA.

This course if by one of my tutors and I was actually one of the crew filming the little clips you see. Fun fact, the shoot took about 6 hours of them just talking and talking. We had to cut down on a lot of the footage coz they would go off into too much detail that wasn't required for an entry level course. It was all unscripted too.
Michael, who runs the course, knows so much about scriptwriting it's ridiculous. He's worked for Disney and Showtime in the US before.
Really good to hear that the paying students get opportunities to do this! I'd be interested to know how you're finding the course?

I do Media Studies specifically, so all things media. It's alright - there's a lot of (what I feel is) pointless theories (things that are common knowledge dressed up in fancy academic terms) you're made to study, but the practical modules and some of the theory based modules are pretty good and you actually get to film, write and create as part of the assessment.

As for the shoot itself, it was part of the university's production company - they do video production for clients from around Norwich and employ students to do all of it - filming, sound mixing, editing. They give everyone a shot at it, if they wish to.

I spoke to Michael today, as he does one of my modules, and he's really happy about the interest in this course - something like 30,000-50,000 people have signed up for it.

Try to remember the populace who rely on Alba and SC4 and have next to nothing in terms of a good internet connection. You wouldn't be pleased to watch BBC1 online only I think.
That's a point I hadn't considered. It is a rather embarrassing situation given BT was once the most advanced telecoms organisation in the world. The inequalities of broadband supply and costs are a national disgrace; not only because the British Isles are a geographically tiny group of islands, but that much of British telecommunications infrastructure technology is still mid 20th century. GCHQ and the NSA controls Thales (French communications and defence company), BT and Openreach (Virgin is most probably tied into this dystopian telecommunications system). The joint interests of these "intelligence" agencies are primarily to blame for the slow roll-out as every aspect of telecoms, whether microwave, satellite, submarine or land, has to pass through Cheltenham and Barbados for interception and analysis. Australia, New Zealand and other Echelon partners' customers have similar distribution of broadband problems due to this historical connection. Most industrial countries whose Governments are not shackled by UK/USA/Israeli intelligence services have far better broadband specifications at much lower prices (some places free).

I would be more than happy to see far less BBC scheduling and a return to the potter's wheel. For some reason (perhaps it's in the terms and conditions) BBC TV maintains lengthy broadcasting times, much of it filled with re-runs and dross.
Yes, it's true that trying to fill the airspace 24hrs a day means a lot of repeats, and budgets mean that a lot of cheap low-quality programming, but this is on par with nearly all the stations. We can't return to those halcyon days of watch with mother.

Push CBBC and Cbeebies, ALBA, BBC 3*, BBC 4*, all BBC News, and BBC Parliament to iPlayer only.
Try to remember the populace who rely on Alba and SC4 and have next to nothing in terms of a good internet connection. You wouldn't be pleased to watch BBC1 online only I think.

Not free, the TV licence is extortionate
Extortionate?
Have you any idea how much the BBC provides - not just TV, but radio (including local radio), online etc etc.? And have you seen what Sky charges?
The license fee is the best broadcasting value there is, bar none - probably anywhere in the world.
I don't give a monkeys what they provide! I don't want it and I should have a choice to pay it or not. Making it mandatory is a crime against freedom.
if you dont want to pay it then stop and just use iplayer then you dont have to pay for catchup

....why not just have one channel that broadcasts for 2-3 hours a day only and remains unbiased. That way the license fee could be taken down to next to nothing, say £10 a year for all.

For some reason (perhaps it's in the terms and conditions) BBC TV maintains lengthy broadcasting times, much of it filled with re-runs and dross. BBC 1 could air from 06.00 - 00.00., BBC 2 18.00 - 01.00., . Push CBBC and Cbeebies, ALBA, BBC 3*, BBC 4*, all BBC News, and BBC Parliament to iPlayer only.

*BBC 3 - 21.00 - 04.00., and BBC 4 - 21.00 - 02.00. Live running news is expensive and superflous. Now that news is at our fingertips 24/7 (with live video coverage) thanks to the internet, I'd prefer they did 1 in-depth News programme with proper investigative journalism and true world news coverage.

Hilarious. The words "First world problems" have never rang truer.

Oh yeah! ...did they forget to bring the post with them? oO

The description of the video doesn't go into that level of detail. :P

Found myself watching this and wondering why, however I couldn't stop!
Very somnambulistic, though I'm left wanting to know "What was their quest?".
Two very fit looking girls! ...gets my vote! X)
