Feel free to debate, but aside from religious figures, surely the English playwright William Shakespeare is the most famous person ever to have walked this earth. His works feature on the curriculums of schools across the globe and his plays are acted out everywhere from tiny village halls to Hollywood.

Could rising at dawn make your more alert, energetic and focused for the rest of the day? Anna Tobin takes a look at this new wake-up call.

The advent of rolling TV and the Internet, emails pinging at all hours and twenty-four hour supermarkets, and even gym...
