We all need a good forty winks. But for many people, this is just a dream. The reality is a nightmare of disturbed sleep brought on by a variety of disorders. Sleep clinician Kirstie Anderson talked at the Cheltenham Science festival about the conditions that keep Britain up at night, while respiratory consultant John Stradling looked at how one of the commonest conditions, sleep apnoea, impacts our overall health, with Russell Foster in the chair to keep us all awake.

The Science Festival received some fantastic reviews.
