Interview: June 12

Andrew Denton may have his most interesting Interview so far with tonight’s chat to Rebecca Sharrock, who can remember almost every moment in her life.

The episode will include her being tested on random pages from Harry Potter books by members of the audience.

Imagine being able to remember every moment of your life in meticulous detail. The day you were born. Learning to walk. What happened in the world on any given day. Every word of the Harry Potter series.

And not just remember those memories, but feel them, relive them.

Twenty-eight-year-old Australian Rebecca Sharrock is one of only 60 people in the world with Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM) – a unique neurological condition which gives her total recall. Rebecca remembers every day of her life as if it were yesterday.

In an extraordinary edition of Andrew Denton’s Interview, we meet the woman made of memories.

Most would call it a superpower. But as Andrew discovers, it’s both a blessing and a curse.

8:45pm Tuesday on Seven.
