Abstract:

How do animals fall asleep, where, and why? Once they're asleep how long do they stay asleep for? What goes on in their sleeping brains and bodies? And do they dream? Using cutting edge hidden infra-red cameras and thermal imaging technology, this film explores the unknown world of animals' sleep time. Filmed at Bristol Zoo, one of the oldest in the world, the program moves from day to night through to dawn, following the key moments as animals reach their 'bedtime' and wake time. An expert team is on hand to unravel the mysteries of animal sleep as seen at the zoo, while the latest research reveals the secrets of sleep time in the wild. Ultimately the film searches for the answer to the biggest question of all - why do animals sleep at all?
