Radio: Pick of the Day

  • @FionaSturges
THE FRIDAY PLAY (9pm R4) follows the fortunes of Dylan Thomas (right), using the poet's own letters and verse for added authenticity. Writer-actor Bob Kingdom shines as the tortured artist.

Don Black introduces Dorothy Fields: First Woman of Broadway (10pm R2), a programme which mixes narration and archive material to present a vivid portrait of the century's greatest lyricist.
