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. We spend a third of our lives asleep, yet it's an area that has been somewhat overlooked by medical science. 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.

Where does alcohol come from? What happens to it in our bodies? Where does it go? What effect does it have? Few of us give these questions a passing thought as we sip our wine, beer or spirits. As long as we enjoy the taste and it makes us feel good, the less we know, the better. Right? That depends.
