TRACKING EDITH is a documentary about photographer Edith Tudor-Hart, who secretly operated as a Soviet spy.

Imitable Behaviour

A boy is believed to have been autistic, and an interviewee states that he would scratch and 'mutilate' himself. No further details are given. Although the work is sympathetic to his condition it does not condone his actions.

Discrimination

A historian refers to a former spy as a 'predatory homosexual', and a historical document cites Tudor-Hart as a 'Jewess'.

There is brief wartime footage, although it does not contain graphic detail. References are made to Tudor-Hart having multiple lovers and the role of seduction in spy work, but allusions to sex are never detailed. Archive footage and images occasionally featuring smoking, but this is reflective of the period.
