The first episode of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's new TV interview show will be broadcast on Tuesday on Russia Today and online, the whistleblowing website said on Friday.

WikiLeaks remained tightlipped on the identity of Assange's interviewee in the first of the 12-episode weekly series entitled "The World Tomorrow".

It has promised "an eclectic range of guests, who are stamping their mark on the future: politicians, revolutionaries, intellectuals, artists and visionaries".

Assange said the show would have a "frank and irreverent tone".

"My own work with WikiLeaks hasn't exactly made my life easier", the 40-year-old Australian former hacker said in a statement, "but it has given us a platform to broadcast world-shifting ideas."
