The Last Lennon Interview

1 x 24 Mins – Documentary



What started as a routine interview to promote an upcoming double album turned into an obituary of one of popular music’s biggest figures of the 20th Century. The Last Lennon Interview tells the story of John Lennon’s final interview with Andy Peebles of the BBC in December 1980. In his first radio interview for 5 years. John Lennon speaks candidly to Peebles about his personal life, Yoko, break up of The Beatles and his US deportation case with all his usual wit and charm. Two days after this interview, Lennon would be shot and killed outside his apartment block in New York and so this BBC interview became his last.
