See the Surrey Sleep Research Centre on the BBC this Thursday

New BBC Two series, Trust me I’m a Doctor, will feature the University of Surrey’s pioneering sleep research and state-of-the-art facilities.

The new three-part series will see medical journalist Michael Mosley and a team of doctors offer advice on health, using their expertise and the latest research to investigate the truth behind various claims being made in the media.

As part of the first programme, surgeon Gabriel Weston takes part in an experiment in our Surrey Sleep Research Centre facilities, home to leading academics and research in the field of sleep and chronobiology, to discover whether an extra hour in bed could have major benefits to health. Read more about his experiment.

Trust me I'm a Doctor will be broadcast on BBC Two on Thursday 10 October at 8pm. You can find out more about the series and watch it on the BBC iPlayer after broadcast here
