    Can anyone help,
    Shown on TV in the late 60', So it could have been made in the 50's
    From what I can remember a group of boys did a robbery and someone died, most of the film was set in the courtroom, were the story unfolded in the end one was givern the black cap, any idea what it was called?

    The other film, Bit of a northern kitchen sink drama, and I'm sure it was cut out in later years,A young teenager, (maybe Albert Finney)shot at 2 women talking in the street with his air rifle from his bedroom window ?

    wouldn't mind seeing them again
    Thanks
    Chris

    It might depend on what time it was shown and on what channel. You sometimes find that a so called violent scene wont be shown on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon slot on BBC, ITV etc, but would be shown if its on Sky Classics/TCM etc.

    The Boys was on BBC Four a couple of years back as part of a season on justice.
