Health is a Health programme.




Angela Rippon and Kevin Duala go in search of the facts about good health. Angela asks whether there is any truth in the claims that stress can actually be good for us, with the help of a trio of people who have what is believed to be one of the most stressful jobs there is. Steve Brown asks whether people really need eight hours sleep a night, and while millions can get by on a lot less, he meets one woman whose health is at risk after she has spent years sleeping for just three hours a night. Kevin Duala explores the devastating impact exam stress can have on teens, visiting a college that is leading the way in helping students cope with the most stressful time of year.
