Watch the full episode. See more American Masters.

In honor of what will be the 30th anniversary of his death next month, PBS airs LennonNYC at 9pm tonight, a look into John Lennon’s life after moving to New York in 1971. The latest in PBS’ American Masters series, the documentary features never-before-seen outtakes from concerts and home movies, archival footage, and interviews with the likes of Elton John, photographer Bob Gruen (the guy behind the iconic “New York City” t-shirt photo) and Yoko, who, according to PBS, “cooperated extensively with the production and offers an unprecedented level of access.” Check out the preview above. Pitchfork probably would’ve given this guy a 10.0 too, you know. Or, actually, maybe they wouldn’t have. They’ve been known to make a bad call or two.

  • hate to say it, but I was a little disappointed. They lost focus a bit I think (it wasn’t really about Lennon in NYC). Loved seeing Jonas Mekas bit in there.
