I saw an excellent documentary on SBS last night (27/5/09) called Dead Tired. It was one part of a two part series. I was particularly interested in an experiment that was conducted on a young healthy man where he slept for three hours each night for a week. After six days, he really was in terrible shape and the experiment was cut short.
