100 years of Dylan Thomas: The touring shed of poetry
21st October 2014

London is celebrating the centenary of Dylan Thomas's birth. 

Swansea-born Thomas spent a significant part of his short turbulent life in London, much of it spent talking and drinking in the then-bohemian bars of Fitzrovia. 

Thomas, famed for poems 'Do not go gentle into that good night', 'And death shall have no dominion' and radio play 'Under milk wood', wrote much of his most celebrated work in a small wooden shed. A replica of it has been touring the United Kingdom and has now arrived in London. 

Griff Rhys Jones talks about Thomas' love of London.
