"The Real John Lennon" was screened as part of Channel Four's "John Lennon Night" on September 30th 2000. The programme, made by the Liverpool-based production company, Planet Wild, featured interviews with many people who had played a part in John's life including Cynthia Lennon, Julia Baird, Nigel Walley, Rod Murray and of course the Quarrymen, who were seen playing in St. Peter's Church Hall. The programme provided a fascinating insight into many aspects of John's life which had hitherto been left unexplored.
Rod Davis was lucky enough to be able to take up Planet Wild's invitation to the recording of a tribute to John which was made at Sir George Martin's Air Studios in Hampstead. Cynthia Lennon, Rod Murray & Alan Williams were there, together with June - the life model whom Lennon drew at the Liverpool College of Art.
Amongst the performers was Lonnie Donegan himself, to whom Rod presented a Quarry Bank School tie. Lonnie produced a fantastic version of "Lost John" which really got the audience going.
