John Lennon & Dick Cavett (The John Lennon Story, Chapter 8)

40 minutes

As the 1970s came to a close, John Lennon famously withdrew from the public eye to focus on his family life.

But as one of those television hosts, Dick Cavett, attests, John was anything but dormant during this period. He nearly made a surprise live appearance on a late-night TV show. He nearly died when he went on a sailing expedition through the Bermuda Triangle. And as his public profile began to increase again, the private security that he and Yoko hired to protect them began to raise some very valid concerns.
