For the very first Dylan Day, celebrating Wales’ favourite poet, listen to him reciting one of his most famous works, plus some other well-known Welsh nationals give their own take on his work…
A maverick certainly, Dylan Thomas is still something of an enigma. But over a hundred years since his birth, one thing is clear: his words (many of which were written in his parents’ humble suburban home in Swansea) have enduring appeal. Listen to him read an extract of one of his most well known works below or watch video of Welsh actors giving their interpretations of his poetry.
