This PBS ‘American Masters’ Programme shows John Lennon’s life in NYC, the importance of his relationship with Yoko Ono and his role as a father and as an activist for peace.
He seemed to inject incredible energy into situations and was not only a musical genius but also a brave man who was outspoken and honest. He was always my favourite Beatle; now I can see why.
Following the breakup of the Beatles, Lennon and Ono moved to New York City in 1971, where Lennon sought to escape the mayhem of the Beatles era and focus on his family and private life. This American Masters’ film takes an intimate look at the time Lennon, Yoko Ono and their son, Sean, spent living in New York City during the 1970s.
