Me and My Memory:
The Confabulist

Listen to Me and My Memory: programme four

Thursday 25 Jan 2007 3.45pm (original TX Wednesday 16 August 9.30am)

Most of us take our memories for granted. In this series you'll meet six people who don't have that luxury.

This feature visits a man who, following an injury, makes up wild and wonderful stories, and believes them to be true - until disabused by his wife.

What's it like to doubt your own memory about your past and who you are - what it is like to live with such a fantasist - and what this case reveals about the accuracy of memory in general?
