Duration: 0 hours 43 minutes
A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation on the writer and poet Dylan Thomas. Based on a true story, Rob Gittins's play draws on archive material. When 'Time' magazine printed a warts-and-all article about Dylan Thomas in 1953, the poet sued them for libel. Needing to gather more evidence, the magazine hired a private detective to shadow Thomas in New York. Stars Trevor White as the detective and Doug Ballard as the editor, also with a cast including Genevieve Adam, Laurel Lefkow, Rhys Parry Jones and Richard Elfyn.
