A new John Lennon documentary will take a look at the musician’s last interview before his death, with BBC Radio’s Andy Peebles in 1980.
Lennon’s Last Weekend, directed by Brian Grant, will be released via BritBox and explore the subjects discussed by the pair.
Among other topics, Peebles asked Lennon about the Beatles’ breakup, his album Double Fantasy with Yoko Ono, and his solo work.
The project will be released this winter to mark the 40th anniversary of Lennon’s death, on 8 December.
BritBox’s CEO Soumya Sriraman told Variety: “As the true home of great British programming, BritBox is proud to be sharing this beloved British music icon’s story with our audience.
“I hope this documentary of Lennon’s last interviews for the BBC provides a way for fans to celebrate his life and legacy in what would have been his 80th year.”
Peter Jackson’s documentary about The Beatles, Get Back, is scheduled for release in 2021.
