I have to wonder if this is another case of announcing the worst case scenario then U turn on certain elements. (See also: closure of 6 Music)
I dare say there is some scope for the BBC to potentially give some minor concessions, whilst still implementing most of the changes. Whilst I'd like to see local radio opt fit in an extra programme by opting for 3 hour shifts I wonder if keeping the current schedules allows them to dispense of older and more expensive talent. In some ways Covid-19 has been the perfect excuse to stream-roller changes to local radio scheduling under the guise that it was temporary, allowing them to test the waters for more permanent changes.
I noticed in the media centre article it mentioned "Modernising the BBC’s regional TV centres - investing in the latest technology", which presumably means new equipment to reduce the number of people required off-screen for TV bulletins.
I imagine if there is any partial rollback on the changes announced it might be to add an extra regional programme or two to the Inside Out replacement. I can't see any rollback on the changes to the local TV news bulletins. Similarly I can't see there being any major rollbacks on local radio, at least until they've allowed some of those on more expensive contracts/salaries to leave. I also suspect some of the other 'temporary' changes made to national radio stations may become permanent.
