TVF International (Firm)
Format

Summary
With more photos taken every two minutes than in the entire 19th century, the Selfie generation would make Narcissus blush. Yet from Napoleon to Steve Jobs, self-absorption is often a trait of leaders. Should we celebrate self-promotion to create a more confident outgoing culture, or is British understatement a treasure? Philosopher Simon Blackburn, broadcaster and NCH historian Suzannah Lipscomb and politician George Galloway examine the value of vanity.
