'Touch and go' if Under Milk Wood would be finished

The world premiere of Dylan Thomas's most famous work Under Milk Wood was performed at New York's 92nd Street Y auditorium.

Bernard Schwartz, director of the theatre's poetry centre, talks about the frantic scenes in the run up to the performance.
