Britbox to air documentary on John Lennon's final BBC interview

Andy Peebles with John and Yoko, 1980

Variety reports that a documentary about John Lennon's December 1980 interview with BBC broadcaster Andy Peebles is set to air later this year.

"Lennon's Last Weekend" will feature segments from Peebles' radio interview with John along with new interviews.
With a new album to promote, “Double Fantasy” with Yoko Ono, Lennon spoke candidly to Peebles about everything from The Beatles break-up, his relationship with Paul McCartney, political issues in the U.S. and U.K., his family and his homesickness for Liverpool. He also talked about working with Phil Spector, Elton John, Mick Jagger and David Bowie and how he produced many of his solo albums, which included anthems such as “Imagine” and “Give Peace A Chance.”

The interview was taped on Dec. 6, 1980, just two days before John was killed.

The documentary is set to air this December.
