Richard Burton interviewed on Wales Today 1962

This interview for Wales Today with Emrys Walters was recorded shortly before Christmas 1962 while Richard Burton was making the film The VIPs (MGM 1963).

The actor mentions his teachers Meredith Jones and Philip Burton, his home in CĂ©ligny, Switzerland, and having watched London Welsh beat Aberavon at Old Deer Park in west London.

There is no mention of the Hollywood star's involvement with Elizabeth Taylor, which had dominated the headlines in late 1962.
