David Hitchin: It looks like the BBC are aware of the problem, according to the transmitter engineering post which has appeared below yours. If you are definitely tuned to the correct transmitter then there must have been some sort of failure with the feed for BBC 1 South East, resulting in the transmitter taking the London feed as a backup (some transmitter have a backup satellite feed in case the main underground fibre feed fails, which may not have all regions available).

I have spoken to a very helpful BBC manager. The main problem yesterday seemed to be that all advisory staff worked from scripts which all assumed that the fault was in the viewer's equipment, with no way of concluding and reporting that the transmitter might have been at fault. Their automatic checks only show that the transmitter is broadcasting but not that it is broadcasting the correct stream.
There were major faults on cables in the area, so perhaps the transmitter was not receiving the proper feed and had reverted to retransmitting the satellite signal for another region.
