BBC unveils the John Peel wing


The BBC is to name a wing of the newly refurbished Broadcasting House after its pioneering DJ John Peel.

The section of the central London building is on the site of Egton House, home to Radio 1 for about a decade. Peel, who died in 2004, was one of the station's original DJs in 1967 and was still broadcasting up until his death.
