Living Without a Memory

Synopsis
Within today’s society, a small percentage of people have lost the ability to remember anything of the past and are unable to create new memories. We all forget trivial things at some point in our lives. But these people can’t remember where they live, even when standing outside their own home. They can’t remember their children, who they saw at breakfast. And they’ve even forgotten why they remember nothing. This revealing programme follows the difficult lives of these people and their families, as they undergo rehabilitation and attempt to reclaim their memories, and their lives.
