“John Lennon was an amazing communicator of heart, mind and spirit. He still speaks to those who choose to listen to his recordings. That was the medium he chose to speak with us.

The controversial new show, which will be available to TV viewers on April 24 this year for $9.95, comes from the producers of The Spirit Of Diana, a televised attempt to contact the spirit of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
