2 TV Debuts For Burton

Richard Burton is top of the bill again in Wales, this time on television.

Two new shows will carry the imprimatur of the legendary actor and carouser. The first is “Richard Burton’s Christmas Story” (“Chwedl Nadolig Richard Burton”), a 60-minute tv adaptation from his only published work of fiction. It aired on S4C in Welsh on Christmas Eve and is slated to run on HT V next month.

And Burton’s voice will resonate on the small screen via an animated version of Dylan Thomas’ “Under Milk Wood.” The program, due to be completed next year, will use the original 1954 BBC Radio broadcast of the play, with Burton in the role of narrator.
