: The Laugh Parade: Never Steal Anything Small

Tonight's film in this comedy season stars James Cagney, Shirley Jones

James Cagney plays a gangster with a difference in this unusual comedy about a crooked leader of a stevedores' union who will stop at nothing in his campaign to become boss of New York's water-front.
Shirley Jones plays the attractive wife of a young attorney whom the unscrupulous Cagney has more than just an eye for. And a sprinkling of musical numbers also gives Cagney a chance to shine as a song-and-dance man.

: News Summary

: Viewpoint

Dorothy Day has been shot at, spat upon, and arrested. In America, the Right-wing denounces her as a Red and the Left accuses her of 'putting Band-Aids on a cancer.' Millions of people mention her name in the same breath as Gandhi's and Schweitzer's; others simply call her a fool, a description she will not deny. She has been shaking up America for 40 years, and she looks forward, not back, in conversation with Jim Douglas Henry.


Interviewee: Dorothy Day
Interviewer: Jim Douglas Henry
Producer: Peter Ferres

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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
