: Starlight: Billie Houston

Billie is the 'boy' of the famous Houston Sisters act. Before leaving Scotland to come to London with Renee, she appeared in concert party, revue, and pantomime. The Houston act was an immediate success: one week they were at the old Shoreditch Theatre and the next they were at the top of the Coliseum bill. Since then they have played at almost every music-hall in the country and once at a Royal Command Performance. They have appeared several times as separate acts and their individual charm is just as evident as when they are together.
Film-goers will remember that Billie starred with Renee in a film called "Happy Days are Here Again", which was the story of their lives. Recently Billie sprang a surprise on the theatre and literary world by writing a successful thriller, entitled "Twice Round the Clock".

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.

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.
