About The Memory Experience
Our memories define who we are
Radio 4’s Memory Experience will be the network’s largest season in 2006, encompassing science, documentary, drama, comedy, entertainment and history programmes, along with a major online site, a survey and a memory test. It’s a chance to get to know how well your own memory works as well as share your memories with others.

As a forerunner to the season, visitors to bbc.co.uk/memory can take the memory challenge. The challenges include: remembering sequences of numbers; spotting differences between images; replicating patterns and remembering everyday objects. The test will collect data for Professor Robert Logie at the University of Edinburgh to ascertain how memory is affected by lifestyle, location, age and sex.

As part of the Memory Experience, the Share section of this site, together with the Leeds Memory Group, launches an ambitious online survey to explore our national identity by collecting and sharing autobiographical memories from the public. The survey – the largest ever to look at the nation’s memories – will run till early 2007.

Professor Martin Conway of Leeds University will be keeping us up to date with his findings and at the end of the survey there will be a run of programmes analysing the results of the experiment and reflecting the public events listeners have nominated as their key memories for each generation.

There will also be a one-off BBC1 programme, How To Improve Your Memory, on 9 August as part of the Memory Experience.
