We talk to the major players in his life, including an exclusive new interview with Yoko Ono, in which she talks candidly about her life with John, and in particular the split with The Beatles and their private and creative life together. She talks about their meeting, John in The Beatles the split their private and creative life together in the seventies, and what he may have thought had he been around today. As well as contributions from his childhood and school friends, and fellow musicians. We also dig deep into the archives for some candid and rarely heard interviews with Lennon himself, including the first ever Beatles radio interview from 1962, which will be a national exclusive.
New and archive material will be cut together with lyrics from Lennon's work with The Beatles , and in particular, his solo work. His painfully autobiographical work such as Plastic Ono Band tracks like Mother and My Mummy's Dead allow us to reflect on John's psychological state at this time. The Imagine album was a piece of work that changed the way many people viewed the world.
The programme examines Lennon the peacenik; the husband; the rock star; the songwriter; the philosopher; the father.
