Poetry From The Front Line

BBC War correspondent Jonathan Charles finds out about the poetry that is being written as a result of the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He talks to the soldiers and relatives of soldiers who are writing poetry as catharsis, in the tradition of the First World War poets, visits Combat Stress, the UK charity which is using poetry as a tool for recovery, and hears poems by the US soldier and published poet Brian Turner.
