Barron to edit major new current affairs strand

Peter Barron is to be Editor of a new BBC TWO current affairs strand to be launched early next year.

Head of BBC Current Affairs, Peter Horrocks, said: "Peter is one of the most creative current affairs talents in Britain and I am delighted he is re-joining the BBC to lead this important new project.

"The new hour-long programme will be dedicated to illuminating the biggest issues concerning the future of Britain and the world and is a significant new initiative for BBC Current Affairs.

"It will be well funded and prominently scheduled every month and will combine high production values and original research into major subjects."

Peter Barron has been a senior producer on Newsnight, where he won a Royal Television Society journalism award for his investigation into the Arms for Iraq scandal.

He was then Deputy Editor of Channel Four News, and more recently has been Deputy Editor of Tonight with Trevor MacDonald.
