There's the finale of Renee Zellwegger's The Thing About Pam, George Clarke's Old House, New Home returns with a trip to a barn, and Football Dreams: The Academy is a new series about youth football in England . . .

Pick of the Day

The Thing About Pam, 10.15pm, RTÉ One

This rather peculiar dramedy – very watchable, but insensitively flippant about a pretty horrific, real-life murder and stitch-up of an innocent man – comes to a close.

Renee Zellwegger’s appalling Pam is getting progressively desperate and picks up Louis Gumpenberger, a stranger with mental and physical disabilities.

She gives him $1,000 to record 'soundbites’ at her house. She calls 9-1-1 and makes Louis blurt out a confession to Betsy's murder.

Elsewhere Russ, who is now rebuilding his life in Florida, is forced to return to Troy, Missouri, to speak to the police.

There are some clips of the real-life coverage around this affair at the end, which gives viewers an impression of the awful reality of this story.

Season 8 opens with architect George Clarke (below) meeting Duncan and Josie, who are taking on an 18th-century barn.

It’s perched on the edge of a pretty green, containing some very dodgy décor including a purple striped '80s kitchen and a miniature kitchen extension built to house a washing machine.

Duncan and Josie need to make it liveable very quickly as they welcome their new baby Ruby, so George sets out to make the dark, cramped layout work for modern family living.

He also heads to Southport, Merseyside, to see a Victorian gothic property in need of attention. Owners Jenny and Fadi are keen to resore the pile to its original splendor.
