Love's Tragedies
  About adultery.
  55 min, ABC-TV, 1999

Love's Tragedies is a rather quirky documentary about adultery. It is built around the personal stories of four individuals who talk frankly about their experiences of adultery. It also analyses the issue through the collective wisdom of social commentator Bettina Arndt, biologist Prof. Roger Short, and a most unusual private eye called Charles. This is a film that gives us a rich insight into the human side of adultery while also exploring some of the scientific, ethical and moral complexities of the issue.
