The stresses of modern day Britain are fuelling a boom in extreme sleep disorders.

As we evolve and change with technology, so do our sleep problems, leading people to behave in bizarre, entertaining and sometimes dangerous ways while they're technically out cold.

Some of these sleep conditions are so extreme they can have an effect on relationships and even be life threatening.

From extreme night terrors that cause sleepers to jump out of windows to sleep-eating, sleep-texting and 'sexsomnia', this documentary meets the sufferers and asks will doctors ever be able to provide an effective cure and allow these sleep sufferers to have a decent night's kip?
