Summary
Pathe synopsis: Introducing a bed which is a real layabout’s paradise - a bedside control panel enables you to draw the curtains, turn on the matress heaters, switch off the lights and turn on the portable television set. Other switches control the raising or lowering of the foot and head of the bed. Also handy are telephones, a tape recorder and a tea-making machine. About all it has not got is an automatic device for counting sheep.
