Studio Lambert behind C4 doc The Boy Who Can't Forget
24 September 2012
Studio Lambert has made a one-off documentary for Channel 4,The Boy Who Can't Forget, about twenty-year-old British student Aurelien who has a superior autobiographical memory.
He is one of just a handful of people in the world who are baffling scientists with their ability to recall an incredible amount of their lives. Some claim they can remember every day as if it were yesterday. Aurelien is the first to go public with this talent in the UK.
This documentary, directed and produced by Barnaby Peel, explores the recently discovered phenomenon as superior autobiographical memory. It will look into the theories of scientists trying to unravel the mystery in the UK and US, and the lives of the seemingly ordinary people who appear to have an extraordinary power.
Aurelien is put to the test by eight time world memory champion, Dominic O'Brien, and examined by memory expert Professor Giuliana Mazzoni to test if it is an elaborate trick or some sort of obsessive compulsive behaviour or perhaps the result of physical differences in the brains.
American school administrator Jill Price was the first person in the world to be discovered with the condition and gives her first interview in over a year.
