As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama promised transparency and open government yet his administration is one of the most closed governments in US history, described as being worse than even the Nixon administration.The technology and information revolution allows the government to cast its net wider than ever before; collecting data, watching, spying and analysing. As revelations of systemic snooping continue to hit the headlines, Empire asks: who is watching the watchers? Joining us as we unpack some of the known unknowns are Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, and war reporters Jeremy Scahill and Richard Rowley. We unravel the psychology of secrets with psychiatrist Justin Frank, the author of Obama on the Couch and Bush on the Couch. We look at the impact of state secrets brought to light with Dana Priest, a leading Washington Post investigative reporter on national security and author of two books, including her most recent Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State. We are also joined by Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights and an attorney representing Julian Assange and Wikileaks; as well as Evgeny Morozov, an expert on internet and privacy issues.

Michael Campbell is one of the few hundred white farmers still left in Zimbabwe since President Robert Mugabe began his land seizure program. Mike, like hundreds of farmers before him, has suffered years of multiple land invasions and violence at his farm. But now this grandfather, a tough, humorous 74-year-old fifth-generation white African farmer, is alone in making a stand. He is taking Mugabe to an international court in Namibia in May for racism and violation of his civil rights. Mike and his son-in law Ben Freeth stand ready to protect their life’s work.
