Fascinating program on BBC One last night - Goodnight Britain - exploring the sleep problems of 5 volunteers, each of whom suffer from a different sleep condition.
Comic at times (Sheila's Victoria Sponge making at 3am) to tragic at others (Gwen hasn't had a good night's sleep for 30 years), it's a real eye-opener (sorry) into the problematic world of sleep.
Having made the diagnoses last night, in Episode 2 - on at 9pm tonight - the sleep experts Dr Kirstie Anderson and Dr Jason Ellis will create a set of treatment plans to help the volunteers sleep better.
Will make for highly interesting viewing...if you missed it, you can catch up on the BBC iPlayer.

I recently came across this London- based homeless charity that I thought is doing a highly worthwhile job and wanted to let more people know about it.
At St Mungo's they say "Our mission is to house, support and care for vulnerable and excluded people who either have been, or are at risk of, sleeping rough and homelessness"
From their 2011/12 review they helped provide housing support to 4500 people and their street outreach team helped 430 people off the streets and into accommodation.
Given our core belief here at The Snoozery that everyone deserves a great night's sleep we think they are doing a great job.
