Under Milk Wood: Richard Burton film rights gift to Wales


The rights to the classic film Under Milk Wood have been gifted to Wales to generate funding for the arts.

The director of the 1972 movie, Dr Andrew Sinclair, handed control of the film to a newly-formed trust.

Under Milk Wood, the play by poet Dylan Thomas, was shot around Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, and starred Richard Burton alongside his wife Elizabeth Taylor.

Here is a clip from the film, followed by Andrew Sinclair and the chairman of the Dylan Thomas Society, Jeff Town, speaking to Felicity Evans on Good Morning Wales.
