Henner was accompanied on the show by four other people who are known to have the rare ability. Doctors were also invited on to the show in order to try and explain the reasons why the condition occurs in some people.

Superior autobiographical memory, also known as Hyperthymestic Syndrome, is an extremely rare condition and just six people in the world are known to be affected by it. Individuals who have the condition can remember smallest of details on any given day that they have personally experienced.
