Thanks for the quick feedback...much appreciated.
In answer to your questions:
Are both partitions formatted as OS X Extended (Journaled)? Yes.
Hopefully you are not going to tell us that even though you use Time
Machine to backup your MacBook Pro, the data on the important data
partition was never included in the Time Machine backup. *cough* Erm...well...it's like this...I just got into the habit of storing stuff on the HD...without backup. My bad.
Oh yes, what was the purpose of connecting the HD to the TV? I've become addicted to "The Walking Dead". Season 2 was stored on my HD. Seemed like a good idea at the time...
Thanks very much and I'll get back to you after I've tried to repair it.
