Extraordinary People (Documentary)
Time - 21:00 - 22:00 (1 hour long)
When - Wednesday 23rd July on five
The Rainman Twins.
Series of absorbing documentaries exploring remarkable stories of human experience from all over the world. Savantism is a rare disorder in which sufferers of developmental disabilities, often autism, are capable of acts of genius that far outstrip their expected level of ability. In Flo and Kay's case, they each have extraordinary memories for facts and dates. Through interviews with several medical professionals, the film attempts to expose the truth behind this misunderstood condition.
(Subtitles, 4 Star)

This is repeated tonight at 9pm on FIVER for those who have this channel and like me missed it last night.

Thanks to OP for highlighting it.

What did others think of the program (I watched some of it whilst chasing Ds backto bed -so it was a bit disjointed!!) The thing that struck a chord with me was how much the twins enjoyed social contact- something that is forgottem. Must have missed the sensory explanation.

I thought it was great. What a waste of talent, though - I'm sure those ladies could have been doing something very profitable with all of that ability, but I doubt they've ever been given the chance or support to do so.
