Eyewitness [electronic resource]: What Actually Happened?

Open University
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Ten people are asked to re-create, from memory, an abstract painting they viewed two months earlier. A fascinating psychological exercise, to be sure-but the experiment will soon become much more than a session with paints and brushes. This program documents the volunteers' unwitting immersion in a staged crime, which they witness during a "break" in what they think is the real test. When a lunch-time pub patron is apparently murdered and the Greater Manchester police department invades the premises, each test subject must summon his or her recollections of the ordeal. Viewers discover how and why these memories prove disturbingly unreliable.
