We can't live without it, but it’s thought a third of us in the UK are simply not getting enough quality sleep. In fact, the problem has become so serious; it's been described as a 'major public health concern'. Tonight's Fiona Foster meets people whose lives have become dominated by bad sleep, and investigates the causes and possible solutions. So have we now become a nation of bad sleepers, and what should be done about it? Some experts believe that sleep has been left off of the agenda for too long. With research suggesting that one in five teenagers have disturbed sleep due to technology, the problem is unlikely to go away, so how do we solve the problem of getting a good night’s sleep?

Add It Up is not quite the definitive Violent Femmes compilation one might hope for, even if it does feature 23 tracks and adds essential later items missing from their first comp, Debacle: The First Decade. There are several charming rarities to hook dedicated fans, who will likely find several favorites missing (perhaps another song or two could have been substituted for the between-song bits). The group's self-titled debut does a better job of encapsulating why they were important, and remains the first Femmes album to buy; besides, no compilation that includes live versions of "Kiss Off" and "Add It Up" in place of the original studio cuts can claim to be definitive. However, even casual fans who enjoyed Violent Femmes will find post-debut songs like "American Music" and "I Held Her in My Arms" to be essential, so even if Add It Up is a little too imperfect to be a necessary first purchase, it's definitely a necessary second purchase. Unless you're a die-hard fan, it will likely be the only other Violent Femmes disc you'll need.

A fascinating look at the colourful career of architect Frank Gehry who despite being well into his eighties remains one of the world's most celebrated and famously provocative creative forces. From the iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to LA's Walt Disney Concert Hall, Gehry's buildings both intrigue and ignite. For Frank, rules are there to be broken. Alan Yentob explores Gehry's remarkable journey from poor outsider in Toronto to global 'starchitect' and follows the construction of a characteristically audacious new Gehry building in Sydney - his first in Australia.

Look at what's happened to the usual how-are-you exchange. It used to go like this: "How are you?" "Fine." Now it often goes like this: "How are you?" "Busy." Or "Too busy." Or simply "Crazy." Without intending for it to happen or knowing how, when, or why it got started, many people now find that they live in a rush they never wanted. If you feel busier than you've ever been and wonder how this happened and how you can keep up the pace much longer, you are hardly alone.

Last century, earthquakes killed over one million, and it is predicted that this century might see ten times as many deaths. Yet when an earthquake strikes, it always takes people by surprise. So why hasn't science worked out how to predict when and where the next big quake is going to happen? This is the story of the men and women who chase earthquakes and try to understand this mysterious force of nature. Journeying to China's Sichuan Province, which still lies devastated by the earthquake that struck in May 2008, as well as the notorious San Andreas Fault in California, Horizon asks why science has so far fallen short of answering this fundamental question.

Mit einem Katapultwurf nasser Wäsche fängt die Geschichte an, in der Pauline, Tochter des Barons von Cant, und Lucy, ihre Zofe, keinerlei Untat scheuen, solange sie nur gemeinsam begangen wird. Die beiden halten zusammen wie Pech und Schwefel, und das ist auch gut so. Denn an gezielten Versuchen die Mädchen gegeneinander auszuspielen mangelt es nicht. Schließlich geht es um die Erbfolge in der Baronie Cant. Der beliebte Sprecher Robert Missler erzählt vergnüglich von witzigen Streichen, aufregenden Abenteuern und unverbrüchlicher Freundschaft.
