Four programmes exploring the mysterious second life each of us lives in sleep.

Is there any point in taking notice of dreams? Have they any meaning at all? It seems that most people would like them to have, and that the age-old search for their meaning and value goes on, only intensified by new approaches to understanding.
Introduced and devised by Norman MacKenzie from his book Dreams and Dreaming.
