Sydney, Sat, 14 Apr 2012 ANI

Sydney, Apr 14 (ANI): WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has completed interviews with various politicians, revolutionaries and intellectuals for his upcoming television series to be broadcast later this month.

The founder of the whistle blowing website announced yesterday he had completed 12 episodes of 'The World Tomorrow'.

The series includes interviews with Malaysian Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, and Moncef Marzouki, the human rights activist who was elected interim president of Tunisia last December, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

During an interview with The Saturday Age, Assange applauded Marzouki as 'a rare politician', who was 'unafraid to speak candidly of the compromises he has had to make in times of revolution and turmoil'.

Assange also highlighted 'the eruption of revolutionary ferment in the Middle East and the emergence of new protest movements in the Euro-American world', and stressed that the aim of his TV show is 'to capture and present some of this revolutionary spirit to a global audience.'

Assange, who is awaiting a British Supreme Court decision on his appeal against extradition to Sweden to be questioned in relation to sexual assault allegations, said his show's strength would lie in its 'frank and irreverent tone'.

According to the report, the first episode will be aired on RT, the Russian English language broadcaster, and released online on Tuesday. (ANI)
