Richard Burton: Niece's memories of Hollywood star

Richard Burton's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will be unveiled on St David's Day after a campaign to have him recognised.

The actor was nominated seven times for an Oscar, but failed to land the award.

Oliver Hides and Peter Johnson asked his niece, Sian Owen, who lives in Burton's home village of Pontrhydyfen, near Port Talbot, whether he would have felt he had missed out.
