The Last Days of John Lennon is the amazing story of John Lennon's life and career, from his earliest days up to his last seconds. It tells the story of the most profound rock-and-roll genius of all time - and of the consummate Nowhere Man who took him from us.

John Lennon achieved with The Beatles a level of superstardom that defied classification. "We were the best bloody band there was", he said. "There was nobody to touch us". In the summer of 1980, ten years after the break-up of The Beatles, Lennon signed with a new label and hired a top producer to recruit the best session musicians, ready to record new music for the first time in years. They were awestruck when Lennon dashed off '(Just Like) Starting Over'. Lennon was back in peak form, with his best songwriting since 'Imagine'.

Even before Lennon left The Beatles, becoming a solo artist and making a life with Yoko Ono in New York City, Mark David Chapman had become obsessed with murdering his former hero. Chapman was convinced that Lennon had squandered his talent and betrayed fans with messages of hope and peace. In December 1980, Chapman quit his security job in Hawaii, signing out as 'John Lennon', and boarded a flight to New York with a handgun and bullets stowed in his luggage. He was never going home again.

Enriched by exclusive interviews with Lennon's friends and associates, including Paul McCartney, The Last Days of John Lennon is a true-crime drama about two men who changed history. One whose indelible songs enliven our world to this day, and the other who ended the beautiful music with five pulls of a trigger.
