There are half a million people in the UK with serious memory problems, more than 50 per cent of which are the result of a non dementia illness. This documentary follows three of them: Debbie is 25 and lost her memory following a series of brain haemorrhages; Sally can recite poetry perfectly but struggles to remember why she has gone to the Post Office; and George lost his memory overnight after a viral infection.

The film is remarkable because it allows you into their lives and sheds light on a condition that is widely misunderstood. It also features some of the most courageous and delightful people to appear on television in this, or any other week.
