Hugh Costello - The Forgetting Curve

As an expert on memory loss, Greg Cooke is asked to invalidate the testimony of an eyewitness in a high-profile murder trial. He undermines the Prosecution's key witness by convincing the jury that we forget as much within 24 hours as we do over a whole year. As a result, a vicious murderer walks free, but Greg is soon to discover - there's a price to pay.

A tense, white-knuckle ride as a rather self-satisfied hero embarks, reluctantly, on a voyage of self-discovery.

Hugh Costello is an Emmy nominated TV and Film writer. His recent work for radio includes Afternoon Plays 'My Dear Children of the Whole World' and 'What The Bishops Knew'.
