This World - World War Three: Inside the War Room

Anyone seen This World -World War Three: Inside the War Room (11 days still to go on iplayer - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06zw32h/this-world-world-war-three-inside-the-war-room)

Surprisingly good 'Committee wargame' working through a response to Russian maskirovka tactics in a takeover of Estonia. Players include Gen Richard Shirreff and Admiral Lord West. Players make decisions, the consequence of those decisions are then played out by actors and scenes of riots and the situation escalates to the point where Britain has to decide to go with Europe or America and with a surprise ending. Are we really this bad or is this meant as a warning? The interesting compare and contrast exercise is to view this alongside Thirteen Days (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirteen_Days_(film)). Not a good one for hawks.
