Season 40, Episode 32 Lennon Naked

First Aired: November 21, 2010

Christopher Eccleston is terrific in the title role of "Lennon Naked," which charts John Lennon's transition from moptop to rock icon in the late 1960s. It explores his relationship with his father (Christopher Fairbank), who abandoned him when he was 6 only to reenter his life in 1964; his failing relationship with first wife Cynthia; his relationship with Yoko; and his therapy with primal scream-originator Arthur Janov, which inspired his classic "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band" 1970 album.
