: The Laugh Parade: One Good Turn

Tonight's film in this comedy season stars Norman Wisdom and also features Shirley Abicair, Joan Rice, Thora Hird
Norman's efforts to save an orphanage and provide presents for the children lead him into a succession of wild adventures - a riotous back-stage chase, the London-Brighton walking race and a dare-devil drive in a model car are all part of the trail of crazy chaos he leaves behind him.
One Good Turn was Norman Wisdom's second film, and one of his most inventive and eventful comedies. Norman has two leading ladies, Joan Rice and Shirley Abicair, and Thora Hird is also featured prominently in the supporting cast. Ted (Dixon of Dock Green) Willis was one of the contributors to the screenplay.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
