Published

Australia’s Sleep Revolution with Dr Michael Mosley” is set to premiere on SBS in early March. The three-part series, produced by Artemis Media, sheds light on the sleep crisis in Australia, where up to 40% of the population is experiencing inadequate sleep.

Dr. Mosley, known for his previous hit series “Australia’s Health Revolution,” takes viewers on a journey to uncover the science behind common sleep conditions like insomnia and sleep apnea. Along the way, he explores the alarming health effects caused by a lack of quality sleep, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, depression, chronic disease, and reduced life expectancy.

One of the unique aspects of “Australia’s Sleep Revolution” is Dr. Mosley’s personal connection to the subject matter. As a chronic insomniac himself, he understands the importance of good quality sleep for overall health. “I believe that good quality sleep is essential for good health,” Dr. Mosley expressed. “And there is so much that can be done to help even Australia’s worst sleepers.”

To address this health crisis, Dr. Mosley joins some of the nation’s poorest sleepers in an 8-week sleep treatment program developed by the Flinders University Sleep Institute. Through a world-first clinical trial, participants receive tailored treatment solutions based on their specific needs. Dr. Mosley, who takes part in the trial as an observer and participant, describes the experience as joyful and eye-opening. He not only learns about the science of sleep but also discovers the real causes of his own insomnia.

In addition to following the participants’ journey, “Australia’s Sleep Revolution” also examines the overuse of sleeping pills and the sleep and mental health crisis faced by Indigenous youth in Mount Isa, northwest Queensland. Dr. Mosley’s exploration of these issues aims to bring sleep health back to the national agenda.

The documentary series goes beyond the scientific aspect and also takes viewers to Parliament House, where Dr. Mosley and the Flinders University sleep scientists measure the sleep quality of politicians, including Jacqui Lambie, Barnaby Joyce, Josh Wilson, and Mike Freelander. This unique approach allows the audience to see the sleep health of the nation’s decision-makers.

When asked about his collaboration with Flinders University, Dr. Mosley said, “I was very keen to work with the Flinders team, who are world class, and to take part in this world-first clinical trial. It was a truly eye-opening series which I do hope will have a huge impact.”

The comprehensive and thought-provoking series, which will be available for streaming on SBS On Demand, aims to educate, inspire, and offer hope to those battling chronic sleep issues. SBS Senior Commissioning Editor for Documentaries, Bernadine Lim, commented, “SBS strives to raise awareness about universal issues that affect all Australians,” and this ground-breaking series tackles Australia’s growing sleep crisis head-on.

By sharing his personal journey and scientific insights, Dr Mosley hopes to inspire a sleep revolution in Australia and improve the lives of those affected by inadequate sleep. “A good night’s sleep can be challenging for many of us and have an unwelcome impact on our lives,” shared Richard Huddleston, Screen Australia’s Head of Documentary. “Australia’s Sleep Revolution” is a timely wake-up call indeed.

Make sure to mark your calendars for the premiere of “Australia’s Sleep Revolution with Dr. Michael Mosley” on Wednesday, March 6th at 7.30 pm on SBS and SBS On Demand.
