Hopefully the name of the title of that program is allways the same? 
Then you could try to use the undoneepgsearch.sh script in the 
plugin-package. Starting this by cron short before midnight with the 
given title should remove the recording from the epgsearchdone.data 
after that you can start a new epgsearchupdate:

   touch /path-to-plugins-config-dir/.epgsearchupdate

and your programm will found as new/unrecorded and timer should be set 
for the next appearance.
