And his finest moment was perhaps when, as a firebrand of the left, and in opposition, he appeared as himself in Troy Kennedy Martin's classic conspiracy TV drama, Edge of Darkness. My son - who aspires to being a film and TV buff (dunno where he gets that from) - has this on DVD, and we recently watched Mr. Meacher's very convincing cameo rôle.
