A classic BBC Radio full-cast production of Dylan Thomas' poetic play for voices starring Richard Burton as the narrator. To begin at the beginning: it is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black....

When Richard Burton breathed the opening words of Under Milk Wood into a microphone, broadcasting history was made. For this 'play for voices' conjures up the intimate dreams and waking lives of the inhabitants of a Welsh seaside village in a remarkable way. It is bawdy and beautiful; its colourful characters lust and love, gossip and fantasise. Through the magic of language, 'Under Milk Wood' creates a rich modern pastoral which, once heard, touches the listener with its poetry and haunts the imagination for ever. This radio drama is the completed version broadcast in 1963, which includes several passages that were omitted from the first recording in 1954.

    " This is a play for voices, which I was part of in elementary school. It is a beautiful example of Dylan Thomas's language, and poetic sense of irony. I remember the narrator's opening line almost verbatim: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible black. The houses are dark as moles tonight, and moles sleep fine in their snouting velvet dingles. (Check and see how close I am!) "
