  Why are sleep disorders on the increase? 17 December 2003  
In a recent study one in five workers admitted to nodding off from exhaustion at work, whilst more people are seeking help for sleep-related problems.

Jenni hears the experiences of sleep walkers and looks at the possible causes and treatment of common sleep disorders with guests Professor Neil Stanley of the the British Sleep Society and Dr Zenobia Zaiwalla, consultant neuro physiologist at the Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
