BBC to make film about last days of Dylan Thomas.

NPG P1683; Dylan Thomas by Rollie McKenna

Dylan Thomas. I love the bottle of Quink on his desk.

Poet Dylan Thomas’s final fatal visit to New York is to be dramatised in a new BBC film, scripted by acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies.

The production, A Poet In New York, will be broadcast next year to tie in with the centenary of the birth of Thomas, best known for his work Under Milk Wood. Casting for the film is yet to be finalised, but the funnyman and broadcaster Griff Rhys Jones will be executive producer.
