Newt was the name on the secret police file in Communist Prague that masked the identity of poet Ivan Blatny. In his 20s, Blatny was a central figure in the cultural avant garde, but when the Communists came to power in 1948 he defected to Britain, much to the fury of the Czechoslovak authorities, who attempted to lure him back. In the years that followed his mental health deteriorated, and he spent most of the rest of his life all but forgotten in psychiatric hospitals. David Vaughan explores Blatny's life and poetry, visiting Brno to meet his family, Prague to the see the police files, and the psychiatric hospitals in Suffolk where Blatny died in 1990. He continued to write poetry to the end on scraps of paper salvaged by his nurse Frances Meacham , and his reputation is confirmed by the testimonies of the former playwright President
Havel and the leading Czech writer Josef Skvorecky. Producers David Vaughan and Richard Bannerman
