Richard Burton (1925–1984), one of Britain’s most successful film stars from the 1960s to his death, started his career as a child actor in radio. Nurtured by Philip Burton, a school-teacher turned radio producer (which the boy recognised by taking the name of Burton) he quickly established himself on the Shakespearean stage as a strongly charismatic figure. While his stage and screen career grew, Burton always had time for radio and audiobooks, making many records of English poetry for Argo. While he became a media figure with his turbulent relationship with Elizabeth Taylor, he will perhaps be principally remembered for this recording of Under Milk Wood.
