The Ageing Files

ABC December 2, 2009

We all think we know what ageing is, but it's actually surprisingly difficult to pin down. In this program, a 70-year old fashion model and her 17-year old granddaughter take part in scientific test to see whether it is possible to distinguish between them. The results give an insight into what contemporary science can tell us about what happens when we age at the molecular, genetic, cellular, physiological and psychological level.

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.
