The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Penaligon Down (Cornwall, England) transmitter.

UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

Maggie: No it doesn't get switched off overnight. If you are loosing signal at the same time every night then it's quite likely that you are suffering with electrical interference from something either in your home or nearby (such as a neighbour's house or something outside) operating on a timer.

Did you mean TV or Radio as this is the DAB radio page, but just the same, as StevensOnln1 says.
Do you have Economy 7? That time of night could be when it switches any heating/water heating on, could be a faulty thermostat. When does the signal return?
