Whether it’s intentional or not, there are plenty of cowboys on the telly tonight.

Whether you have ‘Friends in Low Places’ or not, it’s a good night to stay in and watch a film.

All The President’s Men – BBC4 – 10pm

A multi-Oscar winning biopic starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford about the reporters who broke the Watergate scandal.

Unforgiven – Turner Classic Movies – 11.05pm

Our pick for tonight is one of the last great westerns of the 20th Century, with an all-star cast to boot.

Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, and Richard Harris band together for one last score as the Wild West begins to disappear across the United States.

Great performances, brilliant action, and loads of people looking angry. A brilliant western.
