"On January 22, 1992, a real estate agent named Stephanie Slater was subdued, gagged at knifepoint, and held captive for eight days. This program explores her ordeal as a case study in memory-aided investigation; it also juxtaposes Slater's case with an extended psychology experiment in which ten volunteers have taken part to assess the value of eyewitness testimony. Illustrating the phenomenon known as contextual reinstatement and its central role in cognitive interviewing, the film highlights recently developed technologies that might help improve the memories of the test participants. A cognition-related encephalitis case study is also included."--Container

First Britons( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Horizon reveals how new archaeological discoveries are painting a different picture of the very first native Britons. For centuries it's been thought that these hunter-gatherers lived a brutal, hand-to-mouth existence. But extraordinary new evidence has forced scientists to rethink who these people were, where they came from and what impact they had on our early history. Now, our impression is of a hardy, sophisticated people who withstood centuries of extreme climate change and a devastating tsunami that was to give birth to the island nation of Britain. Their way of life may even have survived beyond its greatest ever threat - the farming revolution"--BBC Two web page
