'Dylan Thomas was an international poet'

It is 100 years since the birth of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and a London tribute to him is being led, in part, by comedian and writer Griff Rhys Jones.

Rhys Jones talks about the amount of time Thomas spent in cities around the world, his frequent visits to the pub "to talk" and hoped that his global success meant he would be remembered as an "international poet", as well as a Welsh poet.
