Yoko's Lennon memorial concert


John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono is marking the anniversary of his 1980 murder with a memorial concert in Tokyo.

The Beatles played in Japan's Budokan Arena in the summer of 1966 - each of the five shows lasted 30 minutes.

Lennon's 75-year-old widow tells the BBC's Duncan Bartlett why she is back in her homeland to play at the same venue.
