Producers of a TV seance which attempts to contact murdered Beatles star John Lennon, without the consent of his widow Yoko Ono, have defended the controversial show.
They’ve hit out at critics who say the show called "The Spirit of John Lennon" is “tasteless”, claiming it’s a “serious” broadcast.
The producers of the “serious” show are set to make serious money, by charging viewers $9.95 to watch it on a pay-per-view digital channel.
Their previous programme, which was a seance with Princess Diana, was watched by 500,000 each paying $14.95.
Paul Sharratt, head of the production company behind the show, says: "People say this is disgusting and I accept that criticism, but we're making a serious attempt to do something that many, many millions of people around the world think is possible."
"Lennon was very interested in the spiritual world. It's a natural follow-up to the Diana seance," he added.
The programme will include visits to places music legend Lennon often visited, including Los Angeles and India.
