Kate: Hello, I’m Kate Colin and this is 6 Minute English. Today I’m joined by Rebecca Byrne and we’re talking about sleep, or lack of it. Hi Rebecca, I have a question for you to start the programme with – how many hours sleep do you need a night?
Rebecca: I need on average 7 to 8 hours I think to feel….human at least.
Kate: That’s a good long time. Well, this month is National Bed Month – an event which is organised by The Sleep Council. Their aim is to remind us of the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. 40 years ago most people got 8 hours sleep a night. But with busy lifestyles today, we’re more likely to get around 6, which is not enough for most people. So in today’s programme we’re going to talk about what happens when you don’t get enough sleep.
Rebecca: (yawns) I’m feeling pretty tired already actually…why don’t you wake me up with the question for this week?
Kate: Alright then, here we go. What is the longest time someone has managed to go without sleep?
