The synth-heavy instrumental sountrack featured at the beginning and end of the programme, which featured an interview with Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Shia militant group Hezbollah. MIA is reportedly set to appear on a forthcoming episode of the show, which is due to run over 12 episodes.

The rapper showed her support for Assange on New Year's Eve 2010, when she released an 18-track mixtape called 'Vicki Leekx', which she said was inspired by Wikileaks.

Her new album, the follow-up to 2010's 'Maya', is due for release later this year, while her 192-page biography will is also set to be published in October. To watch archive footage going behind the scenes of NME's photoshoot with the singer, scroll down and click below.
