It didn't really look like someone cut the BBC network feed.

It looked like someone (whose reflection can be seen in the bottom right of the tv holding a tablet device) was sitting there using their tablet to record tv news, and then used a remote to power off the TV.

Regardless, this is some low-budget production quality by the "Independent"... :-/

Well, except everyone in China saw the same thing at the same time. The device is the camera...

Yes. However, It appeared to me the tv was turned off, as opposed to cutting the footage somewhere else, and having a blank signal. IDK.

It may have happened. IDK.

It would be nice if some Chinese dissident reporting has posted this, rather than a British source.

They probably couldn't get the real footage, so faked it.

Just because they faked it, doesn't mean that it didn't happen.

That page is FULL of trackets. My computer is unusable at the moment, because 100% of its CPU is going towards rendering that page.

If you want to see the video then sorry, I can't get any closer than this: Brightcove is worse than YouTube.
