Default CHANNEL 5 SHOW LOOKING FOR JET LAG SUFFERERS

Hey Everyone!

I'm working on a channel 5 programme all about sleep. We want to do a story on someone who constantly flies back and forth from UK to Aus. Does anyone here fit that brief? And if so, do you want to try out some jet lag remedies and be on TV?
Email me at Ruben.Pracas@spungoldtv.com

Thanks!!

Talk to some airline Pilots..some of them have quite novel ways of dealing with it.

Unfortunately the channel wants to stay clear of pilots, just in case it seems like we're saying the profession is damaging to their sleep. If it's someone's lifestyle choice though then that's fine!

You should talk to them anyway..like I said, some of them have interesting (and very effective) ways of coping with it. It's not only about pilots of course but about how your body copes with it, no different than working night shifts for one week a month. From my own experiences of UK/USA travel I know it takes at least 3 days to acclimatise and get back into sync. on each side. Australia is probably similar or even more extreme. These guys have to do it several times a month.
