THE PROSECUTION OF JULIAN ASSANGE

Julian Assange is one of the most influential figures to emerge this century – and now he is in the fight of his life. Dragged, protesting, from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, nearly seven years after seeking diplomatic protection, he is facing extradition to the United States on espionage charges stemming from the spectacular 2010 leaks by Private Chelsea Manning.

Over two parts, Hero or Villain investigates the prosecution of Julian Assange in key interviews with those at the heart of WikiLeaks and those who have sought to bring him to US justice. Insider accounts give powerful insights into how momentous events have unfolded, and paint a fascinating picture of a polarising figure both lauded and dismissed.
