John Lennon TV channel launching to mark The Beatles star’s 80th birthday

John Lennon would have be celebrating his 80th birthday this Friday, and a brand new TV channel is launching to mark the occasion. It has been 40 years since the Imagine hitmaker was shot dead  in the archway of the Dakota, in New York City. But his death hasn’t stopped his fans from celebrating the icon, seeing music TV director Simon Sadler team up with Lennon/Ono archivist Simon Hilton on the new channel LENNON80. Here they will play a whole host of documentaries to remember the industry giant, including Bed Peace, which looks back on Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1969 Bed-In for Peace in Montreal, as well as their 1971 interview on Parkinson.
