Episode Details

Memories can be deceptive. Psychologists and criminologists know that eye witnesses are not overly reliable, even when they’re acting in good faith. But what psychologists and criminologists have long known is still news to the justice system, the police and the public. This film reveals how our memory can be manipulated, and why we can rely so little on it.
