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!

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,

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.
