Presented by Sian Williams, Goodnight Britain tackled the nation’s biggest sleep disorders, meeting and curing some of the UK’s worst sleepers and exposing the extraordinary behaviour that lurks behind Britain’s bedroom curtains. Goodnight Britain’s sleep experts ventured into the bedrooms of five contributors tormented by a range of conditions, from parasomniacs who scream the house down and snorers whose trumpeting rattles the window-panes, to insomniacs who bake six hours a night.

One of the people featured on the programme was lorry driver Paul, whose loud and constant snoring was leaving him feeling tired in the daytime, as well as keeping his wife awake all night. Diagnosing sleep apnoea due to Paul’s frequent breath-holding while asleep the sleep doctors sent Paul to see me at my clinic at Johnson Hospital in Spalding, Lincs, for treatment.

Goodnight Britain is a two part programme about people who suffer from sleeping disorders and the available treatments.

Michael Oko performs a sleep assessment at around 43 minutes into the programme on one of his patients, a lorry driver who stands to lose his livelihood if not successfully treated.
