Watch Richard E. Grant's Seven Deadly Sins of the Animal Kingdom |

Watch documentary | The animal kingdom is a den of vice : Actor, screenwriter and director Richard E Grant brings a calibre of prestige to this exploration of the seven deadly sins as seen through the perspective of the animal kingdom. For humans envy, lust, wrath, sloth, greed, pride and gluttony are sins associated with shameful behaviour. But in the animal kingdom they are simply survival mechanisms. Richard navigates the dark recesses of the human psyche, as he explores how our human foibles have developed from the evolutionary origins of the seven deadly sins. Cutting between human behaviour and animals in the wild he discovers that the similarities between man and beast are unnerving. With the help of internationally recognised experts we discover the reasons why each animal sins and learn why such behaviour is also part of our DNA.
