Storyline

Mr. Botibol has built a small concert hall in his house where he conducts imaginary recitals to gramophone records. In a music shop he meets Irene, a fellow music lover, and invites her to join in one of his concerts. Unfortunately, she can genuinely play the piano, which sours the mood for Mr. Botibol. Imagination is all to him. Written by don @ minifie-1

I disagree with the other guy...
25 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

It isn't dreadful, I found it quite charming. It deals with the dreamer in all of us, have you ever dreamt of being a bird and flying over mountains full of freedom and ecstasy? This is what this episode is about, it is better than some episodes but not the best. I thought it was entertaining and Jack Weston gave a very decent and likable performance that reminded me of how easy it is in life to let your dreams escape you and to not realise the full potential of your own abilities. Perhaps it is because most viewers of this programme are a lot older than I am but as a 28 year old I find that the only episodes I don't really enjoy are the ones with Joan Collins in, she gives me the creeps.
