From The BBC, 27th September 2000
The "Top of the Pops' Lennon tribute"
The top BBC music weekly, "Top of the Pops" dedicated a special programme to John Lennon to mark the 60th anniversary of his birth.

The programme, (oddly) was broadcast on 27 September (two weeks BEFORE John's birthday of 9th October) and featured Yoko as presenter, linking the musical contributions from John. The eleven featured tracks were :

  • Give Peace A Chance
  • Cold Turkey
  • Instant Karma (the tremendous original "Top Of The Pops" live performance)
  • Power To The People
  • Imagine
  • Jealous Guy
  • Mind Games
  • Whatever Gets You Through The Night
  • #9 Dream
  • Stand By Me (the fabulous "Old Grey Whistle Test" live performance from 1975)
  • Starting Over (Just Like)

It was truly a fabulous broadcast with so-o-o-o much tremendous footage.
