The Tough Guys: James Cagney: White Heat

Also starring Virginia Mayo, Edmond O'Brien, Margaret Wycherly, Steve Cochran.

Ruthless gunman Cody Jarrett and his gang pull off a $300,000 train robbery but commit murder. They take refuge in a remote mountain cabin where Cody's mother and wife are waiting.
As Cody Jarrett - a near psychopath with a mother fixation - James Cagney gives one of his finest performances. It provides an interesting contrast to his appearance, earlier in this season, as the crusading journalist in Each Dawn I Die, and marked Cagney's triumphant return to the gangster film after an absence of nearly ten years.

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.
