The Truth of his Joy

In the 1960's writer and broadcaster Gwyn Thomas made a series of programmes for TWW in which he visited different parts of Wales. In this programme, Gwyn visits Laugharne and pays tribute to the literary genius Dylan Thomas, a man who Gwyn had known well.

Although the original audio of this particular broadcast has not survived , the script that Gwyn Thomas wrote for the programme has. His timeless words are read here by the superb actor Glyn Houston.
