Capello heads for talks with Bernstein over Terry

Fabio Capello, the England manager, will meet the Football Association chairman, David Bernstein, today for talks on the Italian's publicly-stated unhappiness over the governing body's decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.

Last night's viewing - Death Unexplained, BBC1; Alex Polizzi: the Fixer, BBC2

It's always pleasing when programmes contain practical advice and Death Unexplained delivered fairly early. It came from the police and was passed on by coroner Alison Thompson: "If by any chance you do kill your partner without meaning to, of course the best thing you can do is actually ring and say you've done it as soon as you can. Once you start prevaricating you've had it." Very understanding, the police. These things happen, just don't tell fibs about it. What's the best thing to do if you meant to kill your partner, they didn't say, but then you can't have everything.

Fabio Capello's public support of John Terry will come under discussion in talks at Wembley today

Len Fulford: Director behind the 'Go to work on an egg' and Guinness 'toucan' commercials

Len Fulford was one of the most successful and sought-after directors of television and cinema commercials during the industry's glory years, from the 1960s through to the 1990s. He directed many of the great Guinness ads of the '70s and '80s, including some featuring the famous toucan. But he was perhaps best-remembered among his peers for the massively-successful 1960s "Go to work on an egg" TV commercial campaign for Britain's Egg Marketing Board.
