John Lennon

It is exactly 30 years since the former Beatle, John Lennon, was shot dead in New York.

Two days before John Lennon was killed, he spent several hours talking to a young BBC music journalist, Andy Peebles.

For Witness, Andy remembers the man he met - his mood, his conversation, his wit.
