Episode Description
Tuesday, Dec 4, 2012 - 8:00 PM    "LENNONYC" Coming to New York City after the break up of the Beatles, John Lennon and Yoko Ono find what many high-profile people gain in the Big Apple: the ability to walk down the street as an ordinary citizen. But the period that brought redemption and a creative musical burst in the studio, also included the Nixon administration's attempt to deport the pair, John being consumed by alcohol and his being kicked out of their apartment for 18 months. This profile includes film from the recording studio, home movies, little-seen concert film, and interviews with friends and companions. And all the while, there is the music. G
