Leslie Lemke is 33 and was born with brain damage. His eyes were surgically removed because of an infection. Unable to fend for himself, he looks a sad, dispirited figure. But seat him at a piano, and an amazing transformation takes place: his shoulders go back, he breaks into a broad smile and his fingers, which under normal circumstances can't even hold a knife and fork, attack the keyboard with an ability that allows him to give concerts all over America.
Marjorie Lofthouse talks to
Leslie's family and doctors, and assesses how the study of his condition, Savant Syndrome, may help other mentally handicapped people.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
