The boy who can't forget

This documentary on youtube was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK. It investigates several people with hyperthymesia, including British student, Aurelien, and American, Jill Price.

I thought I was doing well being able to manage every day of the past 9 months since I began this process, but these people are amazing. Perhaps if I had began at four years old I would have developed the ability fully too. Or perhaps it is something inate. Certainly at present, I am more like the memory champion interviewed who can remember past dates, but it takes some effort to tag and review each day.
