If you've ever wondered what you get up to while you're asleep, this series is a revelation. Whatever wild and weird sleeping habits you have, this tells you that you are not alone.

But thanks to unprecedented access to a specialist UK sleep clinic, footage of their patients' range of unusual sleep problems, such as parasomnia, narcolepsy, sleep eating, and idiopathic hypersomnia spotlight an array of strange night time activities. Screened over eight weeks, there is hardly a sleeping issue left untouched in this fascinating, dramatic program.
