BBC Preparing Secret Scripts for Winter Blackout Emergency Radio Broadcasts: Report

Britain’s national broadcaster has reportedly been crafting secret scripts to be read out to the public in the event that the energy crisis results in blackouts during the winter months.

The BBC, which as a publicly-funded broadcaster has a role in disseminating messages to the populace during times of national crisis, has allegedly already begun preparing emergency broadcasts in order to reassure the people of Britain if the feared prospect of winter blackouts become a reality and cause disruptions in banking systems, internet access, mobile phone networks, and traffic lights.

One such script, seen by The Guardian newspaper, stated: “The government has said it’s hoped power will be restored in the next 36 to 48 hours. Different parts of Britain will start to receive intermittent supplies before then.”

Another, written in a news bulletin style said: “The emergency services are under extreme pressure. People are being advised not to contact them unless absolutely necessary.”- READ MORE
