Trouble viewing the video? Try reloading this page.
This is a cut segment from a larger documentary on Time titled "BBC - Daytime"; It discusses some of the mysteries of memory and how time effects our lives.
Clive Wearing has a neurological disorder called Anterograde Amnesia which is a condition that doesn't allow new memories to transfer into long-term memory. This means that he will never remember anything since his incident, similarly to the movie Memento.
Clive was an accomplished pianist in the 80s', and fortunately can still play the piano flawlessly. He only remembers his wife, and anything else to him is new information, even if it was presented to him once before.
