Radio 4 Tuesday 24 November 11.30am My Albion Episode 2 of 4 Red Dragon, White Dragon

Continuing her quest for Albion, Zakia Sewell returns to the land of her Welsh grandparents. Zakia spent much of her childhood playing in the streets of Laugharne - a small town which provided Dylan Thomas with inspiration for the characters and setting of Under Milk Wood. She meets Fflur Morse at St Fagans, the National Museum of Wales, talks with artists Fern Thomas and Rabab Ghazoul, and the writer Alex Niven - as well as her grandparents Jojo and Pete.
