Although you haven't given a full postcode, it seems highly improbable that you are getting your signals from this very very low power Manchester Hulme relay transmitter in the Moston/Charlestown area, you are just too far from it. It's far more likely that you get signals from the main Winter Hill transmitter.
I've checked for listed transmitter faults and can find none for your area. If there was a problem with any of the main transmitters serving your area at the time you mention, there would be 100's and 100's of reports and complaints as well as one from the BBC. It seems more likely that something along the lines of StevensOnln1's suggestion occurred.
If you have access to the BBC's iPlayer you'd be able to watch Charles' speech and much other coverage at your leisure.
