His documentary "the Football Men" was superb.
About Busby, Shankly and Stein, well worth a watch.

This piece is worth a read too.

He had a great voice for narration on the Football's Greatest series.

He was really good in that show. He was also excellent in The Old Guys. One of the most underrated sitcoms of recent years, alongside Roger Lloyd-Pack, both gone now. Unhappy

A brilliant adaptation of my favourite book.The perfect choice to play a working class rebel. He stuck to his principles in the roles he took on and  in snubbing the cousin f**kers.

Fantastic actor up there with the very best. 

His performance as Churchill was off to a tee and pisses all over two decent portrayals by Oldman and Gleeson.
