Chris Corcoran tests a panel on their knowledge of the Swansea poet Dylan Thomas. What bits of the Dylan story are true and which bits are part of the mythology that's grown up around him?

This programme offers a light-hearted quiz looking into Thomas the man and Thomas the legend. This could get ugly. Or lovely.

Jeff Towns, an expert on the writer, adjudicates.

This show was recorded at Laugharne Castle. Dylan Thomas lived at the Boathouse in Laugharne for the last four years of his life with his wife Caitlin and their young family. Many of his works were written in the writing shed on the cliff top above the Boathouse. After his death in New York in 1953, Dylan's body was returned to Laugharne and buried in the grounds of St Martin's Church.
