This documentary was excellent, challenging the well known story that Dylan Thomas drank 18 straight whiskeys and sank into a coma before dying in a New York hospital. There is a suggestion that on his trips to America he sought medical help for pain and sleep problems from a rogue doctor described as a ‘Pill man’ who may have administered a lethal dose of morphine.

It looked at his life going backwards from when he died to his childhood and birth, his trials and tribulations, his loves and promiscuity, but above all his wonderful poetry, hence the title From The Grave To The Cradle. Worth watching.
