Bristol is the DR backup for Leicester Square.

It's still fully equipped to run the radio networks as it was from the GWR/early GCap days when it was the network hub. It has a lot of studios and office space, formally full of life, now sitting empty solely for this purpose.

As well as serving as a backup network hub via the local sites, it also has the capability to dial in to the transmitters and take over their output if needed, which would be required for the London stations if Leicester Square is evacuated.
