The simple answer is they are not getting them from Bincombe Hill as it's a Freeview Light transmitter which doesn't transmit the multiplexes that those channels are on, it only transmits the 3 PSB multiplexes. For which channels are on which multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview
So as they are getting them from another transmitter, we'll need your friend's full postcode and yours to look at the predicted reception at your locations to see which transmitters and multiplexes may be receivable.
