: Alleyne and Leonhardt

at two pianos

Alleyne and Leonhardt are the pseudonyms adopted by two brilliant English pianists who are well known on the air and in the concert-hall. Leonhardt was thought to be the most distinguished pupil of post-war years to pass out of the Leipzig Conservatoire. They are now exploiting a novel formula, creating their own arrangements of the lighter classics and British folk songs and ballads. Their work is not that of the usunl duettists, but a new conception of the development of two pianists playing together.

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
