"The concert should be a really entertaining night."

HULL: A researcher from the University of Hull has helped with a television documentary aired last night.
Professor Giuliana Mazzoni, of the department of psychology, has been researching a kind of memory that scientists did not believe humans could possess.
Superior Autobiographical Memory is a newly discovered phenomenon in which people with the ability appear able to remember most days of their past in great detail.
When given a date, they are usually able to recall precisely what they did that day, who they were with and even details of conversations, programmes they saw on television or what they ate for their lunch.
A 20-year-old Cardiff-born university student called Aurélien is the first person in Britain to come forward claiming to possess this ability. He featured in a Channel 4 documentary last night, in which Prof Mazzoni also featured.
Prof Mazzoni said: "It is these exceptional cases that give the first clue to something that might change the way we think about how personal memory works, so it is really an exciting moment."
Professor Mazzoni believes there may be other people in the country who also have this ability. She would like anyone who might be able to help her with her research to contact her at the University of Hull.
