Happy birthday, Dylan Thomas
It is the birthday of Welsh writer Dylan Thomas (1914), whose 1954 radio drama Under Milk Wood was inspired early one morning when he walked about the small town where he was living and wondered about its inhabitants. that led him to write a short story, Quite Early One Morning, which was recorded for BBC Wales in 1944. Ten years later he expanded the idea and his Under Milk Wood was broadcast. Famed Welsh actor Richard Burton reads from Under Milk Wood the character of Rev. Eli Jenkins. Enjoy.
