Panorama: Sleepless Britain

Our children are exhausted. Britain’s kids are going to bed later and sleeping less, and hospital visits triggered by poor sleep have tripled in ten years. This is playing havoc with children’s health and education, causing obesity, problems for parents and teachers, and even family breakdowns.

In this film, reporter Jenny Kleeman finds that from toddlers to teenagers, children’s rocketing use of technology coupled with more lax modern parenting is creating an epidemic of poor sleep.
