Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony – in 2012 the LATE at the Museum series explores the seven deadly sins, how they play out in modern life, whether they still belong on the list and the social, economic and environmental repercussions of these base human tendencies. In 2012 are our “sins” more grievous, more extreme than they once were – or are they just better publicised?

Technology has moved on while human tendencies remain – is the evolution of new technology one of the enablers for sin?

Smart Talk with Wallace Chapman, Sir Lloyd Geering, Denise L’Estrange-Corbet and Reuben Paterson.

Great music from The Bellbirds:
Creating their unmistakable sound is the soulful, emotional voice of Sandy Mill, Victoria Kelly’s spellbinding voice and keyboards, Sean Donnelly on guitar and bass and Don McGlashan’s powerful vocal and instrumental presence, most recently witnessed in Ship Songs at Q Theatre
