BBC animation celebrates Dylan Thomas


The Hunchback in the ParkThe BBC has marked National Poetry Day with a short animation of a Dylan Thomas poem.

The BBC Wales film features Michael Sheen performing Thomas’ ‘The Hunchback in the Park’, rendered visually by Aardman Animations.

The actor said: “The animation brings Dylan Thomas’ poem to life in a very imaginative and striking way and I can only hope that audiences everywhere find it as engaging as I did.”

The animation, which tells the story of a hermit in Cwmdonkin Park, Swansea, is available on iPlayer.

It will also be broadcast on television later this month to celebrate the centenary of the poet’s birth.

Watch the animation here and let us know what you think.
