Can you help me recalling the title of a sci-fi movie I saw first in 2000:

About the plot:

  • A group of young people can access a (recorded) memory of a man (the man is possibly dead)
  • They must dig through the memories of him, but I forgot the purpose of it.
  • The memories are about the childhood of the man
  • The room in which they access the mans memories is blueish and only the head of the man is visible on a kind of screen

It looks like the Short Movie 'The final moments of Karl Brant', but I miss the childhood memories in this movie and the group of young people investigating. As far as I know, the movie is not part of any series

I would very much like to see the movie again.

    Is this definitely a movie? The description reminds me of the 4-part TV series Cold Lazarus.

  • It is Cold Lazarus indeed! Thank you very much! :) Finally found this miniseries now. I don't recall it being a series, but it apparently is.

  • @Bram - I'll add Cold Lazarus as a formal answer.

This sounds like Dennis Potter's last work, Cold Lazarus

wiki, imdb

In the 24th century, a team of scientists extract memories from the cryogenically stored head of a 20th century writer for broadcast on TV.

This 4 part drama followed on from Karaoke
