Although the BBC article mentions that the script was written back in the 70s, it does not mention when it was deemed un-necessary or too dated – is there likely to be a replacement that we will not hear (hopefully) for another 30 years, or given that the (original) cold war is over, do we simply not have an alternative plan for the BBC et al?
