The controversy surrounding WikiLeaks' historic release of more
than 70,000 classified US military documents on the war in
Afghanistan has not died down.

But one thing is certain: online data and its dissemination is
changing journalism and the relationship betwen public and
power.

In this special event, we ask:

-- How are organisations like WikiLeaks changing the way public
data is released?

-- What do the Afghan War Logs mean for the mainstream media and
government media relations?

-- What are the legal implications of the War Logs files'
release?

Joining us on this panel are: Julian Assange, WikiLeaks
editor-in-chief (via online link up); journalist, academic and
freedom of expression activist Heather Brooke, whose successful
campaigning led to the full release of MPs' expenses files; media
lawyer Mark Stephens of Finers, Stephens Innocent and Simon Rogers,
editor of The Guardian's Datablog.

Chaired by Paddy O'Connell, the presenter of BBC Radio 4's
Broadcasting House.
