One of Heston's last roles was as a judge in an episode of the new Outer Limits show, titled "Final Appeal," originally broadcast in September of year 2000.
It took place on some alternate Earth where technology was outlawed.
For those who wish to be surprised, I'll mention the time at which Heston first appears in this video as a spoiler:
Spoiler:
Heston appears at the 5-minute mark

Haven't seen this one, not sure the show has ever aired in Sweden. Do you know if it's available on DVD?

I've been trying to find out and as near as I can figure the answer is yes - with some qualifications.

This was a 6th season Outer Limits episode. The standard official DVD releases began with the first season and then stopped because sales were not good. Then, some other company released all the seasons on Region One DVD sets but only in Canada. So, yes -- there is a 6th season DVD set in which this episode should be found but there have been complaints about the manufacturing. You can check it out here on Amazon.com > OUTER LIMITS 6TH SEASON DVD SET

You can also see the actual episode, for a couple of bucks, at Amazon > FINAL APPEAL EPISODE.

According to Wikipedia, Shout!Factory plans to release new DVD sets, which may be better to wait for.

Thanks for the information, Chrysagon :cheers: I have no rush, and big faith in Shout! Factory, so I'll sit tight for a while on this one.
