If they're in fact gone off disk, then they either auto-expired or  
were deleted. If you keep logs, check them for what happened.
Something like:
grep "Pocoyo" /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log

If you keep logs in your database; then use the mysql client like this:

mysql -umythtv -p
<enter your password>
mysql> use mythconverg;
mysql> select  * from mythlog where details like '%Pocoyo%';
mysql> exit

You should see something in your logs that will tell you if they were  
expired or deleted.
