A must see for all those who sleep less than 8 hours.
The 2 hour mini series is available on our website:

This 2-part documentary will be the first to reveal the cutting edge science behind why most of us
are sleep deprived and the dramatic effect that it is having on both our bodies and our lives. The
documentary highlights the frightening reality that tiredness is now an unsuspecting killer that is
spreading like a pandemic through todays 24/7 activity-driven society.

Episode 1: Awake is the new sleep.

This episode investigates how sleep deprivation causes sickness and death in todays society. The
documentary examines the cutting edge science that proves tiredness impairs performance,
affects our mind and damages the body. The episode follows a unique scientific experiment where
we observe in real time what happens to a healthy 25-year old when he cuts back his sleep from 8
to 3 hours a night for one week. We witness how the subject becomes psychotic, dreams whilst
awake and drives a car while fast asleep!

Episode 2: Planet Insomnia

This episode investigates the causes, consequences and cures for insomnia which is now the
worlds most common medical disorder. The second episode features 4 personal stories of people
suffering from insomnia which includes an Australian woman who cured her insomnia with yoga,
and an American sleep doctor who attempts to cure the insomnia of a depressed suicidal
teenager. The episode also shows how an innovative American trucking company cured the sleep
problems of its 675 drivers and the amazing story of how an Australian woman broke into her ex-
boyfriends house and acted bizarrely after taking a sleeping pill.

Dead Tired was shot in Australia, America, Canada and England and follows the personal stories of
those affected by insomnia or sleep deprivation, and the medical discoveries of professionals who
are trying to cure them and others of this potentially fatal disorder.
