Michael Sheen lecture

Post by Gfamily » Wed Jan 06, 2021 5:20 pm

People may have seen recent reports about Michael Sheen returning his OBE in 2017 in advance of a lecture he was preparing to give.

The lecture is available on YouTube, and is well worth a listen to if you have time. It's primarily about Wales and its history, but it may be of interest to a wider audience. 90+ minutes, i'm afraid (but he does have a lovely voice).

Meta? I'd say so!

Michael, not Martin, but he's the better one anyway!

Turned out the US is having an attempted coup so Michael's dulcet tones have had to be postponed til another night.
