WGBH takes you on a journey through the second half of the life of John Lennon with two special programs. First, Masterpiece's presentation of Lennon Naked is an intimate look at Lennon's final years with The Beatles. Then, flash forward year's later with American Master's LennoNYC, chronicling the time Lennon and his family spent in New York City.

Lennon Naked

Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) channels John Lennon in this acclaimed recreation of Lennon’s last turbulent years with the Beatles, co-starring Naoko Mori (Torchwood) as Yoko Ono, the woman blamed for breaking up the band, and Christopher Fairbank (Masterpiece Tess of the D’Urbervilles) as Freddie Lennon, John’s absentee father.

LennoNYC is the story of how Lennon found redemption not in the public adoration he craved as a youth, but in the quiet and simple pleasures of fatherhood. It is also a New York immigrant’s tale. Lennon came to New York City in 1971 seeking what every other immigrant has sought: freedom — the freedom to be himself and not “Beatle John,” the freedom to live a normal life.
