16 May 2005
Channel 4 attacked over interview with murderer.

From the Liverpool Daily Post (12th May 2005) comes this story:

"YOKO ONO yesterday attacked a Channel 4 decision to broadcast an
  interview with John Lennon's killer.

  "The 25th anniversary of the day Lennon was shot five times outside the star's home in New York is in December this year and Lennon would have been 65 on October 9 this year.

  As part of a series of programmes to mark the anniversaries, Channel 4 is reported to be planning to show an interview  from a prison cell.

  "Yoko Ono said: "I think that it's horrible for Channel 4 to do this.

  ""Myself, John's family and so many fans will be hurt by the showing of such a programme."

  "The plans have also been attacked by Beatles fan clubs across the  world, many noting the irony that the motivation behind the murder was to achieve celebrity."

Lucy Carter has set up an online petition objecting to the broadcast of the programme.  If you'd like to sign -- it'd be especially good if you're in the UK -- you can find it here: http://www.petitiononline.com/number9/petition.html
