A new radio for new Broadcasting House


The judges of a competition to design a special edition radio for BBC Children in Need have finished their deliberations. Radio 4's Today programme hosted the competition, which was inspired by the programme's impending move later to the newly-built Broadcasting House in central London.

Listeners were invited to design a 'skin' or outer cover for a limited edition DAB Radio, which will be sold to raise money for BBC Children in Need.

The brief asked people to reflect the great traditions of radio but also represent broadcasting in a contemporary way. Here, take a look at how the judges and design advisor came to their final decision - and find out which listener's design will be produced.
