Sequential line-ups may reduce false-positive identifications because a relative judgement requires the witness to compare the image in view to their memory of previously seen images. However, UK guidelines require that video parades based on a sequential presentation must be shown to each witness at least twice, raising the question of whether witness memory is sufficiently accurate to enable relative judgements to be made between presentations of the parade. This question was investigated in the present study by using a change blindness paradigm in which some of the foils were changed between the first and second presentation of the parade.
