Have you seen what’s new this Christmas?
Bloomsbury Video Library launched this month with the Arts and Humanities Collection (formerly known as Artfilms).
With an international range of content across the visual arts and performing arts, film, history, and more, this collection features exclusive indie films and shorts, avant-garde performances, interviews with renowned writers, artists, choreographers, performers and practitioners, documentaries on an international range of themes, traditions, and historical figures, and much more.
We hope you enjoy this video of Richard Burton reading Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales
In this recording, Richard Burton recites Dylan Thomas’ poem A Child’s Christmas in Wales while walking in lower New York City, sitting in the kind of bar Thomas favored, looking at the Hudson river. Black and white film, moody, effectively handled by the young Burton, who introduces the reading by pointing out that like Thomas, he, too, is a Welshman.
