Forgive me for my ignorance, but as BBC Wales has had what's been described as a "total power failure" in Llandaf, taking out TV, radio and S4C, what is sustaining BBC Wales TV and radio channels this evening? I mean when the power cut happened at 18:15, how did they switch to BBC NI if literally the whole Llandaf complex lost power? Does Broadcasting House in London automatically take control of the BBC One & Two Wales TV feeds if Llandaff is effectively disabled?
All BBC services go through a central location (two in fact, obviously I won't say where) before going out to the various companies and departments that distribute them
One advantage of that is that if there's an issue and a service isn't available there is something downstream that can switch a replacement out
