This short portrait of R.S. Thomas (1913-2000) was shown in December 1995 by Bookmark after he had been nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature for 1996 (which went to Seamus Heaney). With commentary by Griff Rhys Jones and Denis Healey, it includes Thomas reading two poems, 'Children's Song' and 'The Other'. Filmed mainly on Anglesey, where Thomas lived in his retirement, the film features his former parishes of Aberdaron on Lleyn and Manafon in mid-Wales (with some archive footage from 1963). R.S. Thomas's later poetry was published by Bloodaxe in five books including COLLECTED LATER POEMS 1988-2000. His UNCOLLECTED POEMS is also forthcoming from Bloodaxe. For more information on R.S. Thomas, see:
