THERE'S LITTLE for football fans to do between now and the start of the Premiership football season - aside from discussing Manchester United's proposed non-participation in the FA Cup or watching the Copa America Football (1pm Sky Sports 2) that is taking place in Paraguay. The matches featured this evening are the games between exotic underachievers Chile and Mexico, plus the match between Brazil and Venezuela.

In The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend (6pm FilmFour) writer-director- producer Preston Sturges guides Betty Grable (right) through an entertaining if uncomplicated western spoof. Grable plays a singer who is forced to disguise herself as a teacher after accidentally shooting a judge in the backside during an argument with her boyfriend, Cesar Romero. Fun, if a little reliant on slapstick.
