Vinnie Zuffante/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty ImagesA recent John Lennon documentary will get its U.S. premiere on the BBC America channel next month as part of a block of Beatles-related programming timed to coincide with Paul McCartney's 70th birthday.  Debuting on June 19 at 9 p.m. ET, Discovering Lennon takes a look at the lasting impact the singer/guitarist's music and ideas have had.  The film will feature interviews with a number of present-day political and pop-culture figures.

Among the other BBC shows focusing on the Fab Four that will be broadcast during June are Beatles Biggest Secrets and The Beatles: From Liverpool to San Francisco.  McCartney will turn 70 on June 18.
