Leonard Rossiter stars as Uncle Jim, who knows all there is to know about screens silver and small, and the faces that appear on them. When he swears to have noticed Burt Reynolds in a film his family is watching on TV, no one will agree that it is Burt. Unfortunately, Jim cannot accept that they don't see it, let alone that he could be in the wrong!
