I'd be a little bit surprised if it doesn't exist, the scan should
have used the "Logical Channel Number" code to assign "1" to BBC1.
Worth checking though. (I think Piers did say he was using DVB-T)

The only other thing I can think of is that mythfilldb has messed
things up for you. I'd be tempted to clear stufff down, empty the DB
tables etc and rescan.
