Griff Rhys Jones presents this documentary about Kenneth Grahame's classic children's novel 'The Wind in the Willows' and, in particular, the character Mr. Toad. Griff takes a look at Toad's personality traits, such as his tendancies to act impulsively and form passing obsessions, and suggests that Grahame's troubled son Alastair may have been an inspiration for the character. The programme also examines Grahame's relationship with Alastair, who suffered from health problems and committed suicide when he was still just a young man.
