A&E will premiere the two-hour special John and Yoko: Above Us Only Sky next month as part of the network’s “Biography” strand.

The film follows the making of John Lennon’s 1971 solo album Imagine, exploring the politically divided time in which he recorded it.

John and Yoko also puts emphasis on the creative collaboration between Lennon and Ono, using the couple’s belief in radical engagement to draw parallels between past and present.

The special features interviews with Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon, photographer David Bailey, gallerist John Dunbar (who introduced the couple), Lennon’s former personal assistant Dan Richter and studio designer Eddie Veale.

John and Yoko: Above Us Only Sky is produced by Eagle Rock Films in association with A&E Network. Peter Worsley serves as producer, with Geoff Kempin and Terry Shand serving as executive producers.

The doc premieres March 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
