Professor Roger Ekirch looks back through our history to examine the evolving nature of sleep. From Renaissance 'devils' that haunted the superstitious, to the endless noise of Victorian London, Professor Ekirch describes the conditions that have deprived us from sleep, and the medical effects they have had on society. 

This lecture was filmed at the 'Is today's society sleep deprived?' meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
