Memories make us who we are, charting our passage through life, storing the things we learn, moments we cherish and our impressions of the world around us. But how does the memory process actually work - and is there anything we can do to improve it? Actor and writer Maureen Lipman is a collector of memories - whether in her bestselling books or in her head, she sees them as 'the diary of her life'. But she's worried about her memory - she witnessed her father permanently losing his short-term memory after an operation and Maureen felt the essence of her father was lost at that moment. In this warm and entertaining programme Maureen takes us on a journey to understand more about how memory works. With the help of family, friends and a few experts Maureen explores the weird and wonderful human memory. She also picks up a few tricks to help her keep her memory sharp.
