I saw the trailer and information on Jason's website. If I bought the video and then offered it for sale at a slightly lower price- it's $45.35+ ?S&H would anyone be willing to purchase it second hand via paypal? I was thinking 10 or 15% less than what I pay for it.

Full details on the two episodes of Dead Tired (www.mindfulmedia.com.au):

The National Sleep Foundation reports that sleep deprivation, not cancer or coronary illness, now constitutes the number 1 killer in the Western World. It is estimated that 1/3 of the population suffer from insomnia during their lives while another 1/3 are dangerously sleep deprived. Experts claim that sleepiness is “the smoking gun of the modern age” and fear that unless we radically shift our attitudes towards sleep we are heading towards a medical meltdown.

In DEAD TIRED, new medical studies will reveal what many scientists have long believed - that sleep deprivation can trigger and exacerbate many diseases including heart disease, obesity, diabetes and even depression. This 2-part documentary will be the first to reveal the cutting edge science behind why most of us are sleep deprived and the dramatic effect that it is having on both our bodies and our lives. The documentary highlights the frightening reality that tiredness is now an unsuspecting killer that is spreading like a pandemic through today’s 24/7 activity-driven society.

Episode 1 - Awake is the New Sleep

This episode investigates how sleep deprivation causes sickness and death in today’s society. The documentary examines the cutting edge science that proves tiredness impairs performance, affects our mind and damages the body. The episode follows a unique scientific experiment where we observe in real time what happens to a healthy 25-year old when he cuts back his sleep from 8 to 3 hours a night for one week. We witness how the subject becomes psychotic, dreams whilst awake and drives a car while fast asleep!

Episode 2 - Planet Insomnia

This episode investigates the causes, consequences and cures for insomnia which is now the world’s most common medical disorder. The second episode features 4 personal stories of people suffering from insomnia which includes an Australian woman who cured her insomnia with yoga, and an American sleep doctor who attempts to cure the insomnia of a depressed suicidal teenager. The episode also shows how an innovative American trucking company cured the sleep problems of its 675 drivers and the amazing story of how an Australian woman broke into her ex-boyfriends house and acted bizarrely after taking a sleeping pill.

Dead Tired was shot in Australia, America, Canada and England and follows the personal stories of those affected by insomnia or sleep deprivation, and the medical discoveries of professionals who are trying to cure them and others of this potentially fatal disorder.

Dead Tired is available though the Mindful Media website: www.mindfulmedia.com.au
