Summary Join Jennifer Byrne and her panel of esteemed guests for a sinfully good seven weeks' viewing of deadly sins. Each week one of the seven deadly sins will be discussed in all of its 'guilt inducing glory'. This week it is the gravest of the sins - Pride - the one from which all the others flow. Pride takes many forms including hubris, vainglory and arguably, increasingly often in the modern era, narcissism. Pride has given us some of the most mesmerising characters in literature, from Doctor Faustus to Madame Bovary, as well as the creations in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. Guests, director of the Wheeler Centre, Michael Wheeler; former Vogue magazine editor and author, Kirstie Clements; writer and host of The Monthly Book online, Ramona Koval; and lawyer, producer and performer, Steve Vizard, join Jennifer to discuss the inspiration of great literature, the sin of pride. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Jennifer Byrne Presents Seven Deadly Sins is produced by ABC Arts. Producer: Amber Ma; Executive Producer: Kath Earle: Researcher: Fleur Mitchell
