Kimberley Andress:

It would appear that you may have an equipment problem. There have been no other reports of loss of programmes from the Penaligon Down transmitter, as that would have been expected if there was a failure at the transmitter.

Check all the leads feeding your TV set and ensure everything is properly plugged in and the plugs fit firmly, but not too tightly, into the appropriate sockets.
