          "Who Am I?"

          December 31, 2008

          Imagine waking up one day unable to recognize family and friends and having no recollection of anything. What would you do? Four years ago, that was the fate of a man who now calls himself Benjaman. Found beaten, naked and unconscious behind a Burger King in Georgia, Benjaman didn’t even recognize himself in the mirror.


          What does Benjaman say he knows to be true about his life?



          Determined Advocate

          Katherine is a psychiatric nurse who was working at a health facility in Georgia when she met Benjaman. She took him in and has worked tirelessly to help him find his past.


          “If we get his face out there and stick with it, we’ll find his family.”



          Experts Weigh In

          Dialect expert Carmen Fought meets with Benjaman to determine what part of the country he may be from. Former FBI agent Harold Copus hits the trail to see what he can uncover about Benjaman’s past. And, professor of psychology Dr. Barbara Knowlton shares information about the type of amnesia Benjaman may be suffering.


          Find out what these experts are able to determine about Benjaman.



          Moving Forward

          Holly suffers from amnesia and another condition that has hindered her life dramatically. She shares how she’s able to move forward with her life. And, Dr. Frank Lawlis shares new technologies that may be able to restore a person’s memory.


          Will Holly’s advice inspire Benjaman?
