Part of the series which gives cameras and training to people to record their own lives, THE MAN WHO LOVES GARY LINEKER features rural GP Dr Ylli Hasani who risked imprisonment in totalitarian Albania by listening to the BBC World Service to keep up to date with world events, especially English football.
His film is the first programme to portray in depth the lives of ordinary Albanians as they live through massive social upheaval. Hasani tries to leave his country to work in the west, but his first visit to London is to supervise the completion of his film - and to try to meet some of his football idols, particularly Gary Lineker.
