      1. The video is showing, but there is no sound. I tried other YouTube videos, and there is not a problem viewing or listening to them🙁


      2. Not the sound. I will show it to our IT person at school and see if he can figure it out. I would love to show this to my British Literature students.


      3. They would love it! They voted Burton’s reading of “Do not Go Gently into That Good Night” the best of three that we heard! Thank you!


      4. Then they’ll probably love Under Milk Wood. Richard Burton’s narration is magical.

        I don’t know how old your students are – and I don’t know if anything from the BBC will reach you, but this study guide to Under Milk Wood looks interesting, with videos of Dylan Thomas’ Welsh hometown: http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/zg786sg


      5. One extra thing an 18 year old might enjoy is the fact that Dylan Thomas wrote the germ of the idea for Under Milk Wood when he was around their age. That’s an empowering thought, as a young writer.

        Thinking of your students, I saw a great course on Future Learn – the international, free, university run course organisation. The teacher on ‘Shakespeare and His World’ is inspiring. Even though the course has started, once you join, the material is available to you forever and you can start when you like. It’s here: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/shakespeare-and-his-world


We'd love to know what you think
