Today’s edition of the BBC Radio 4’s current affairs news program was curated by PJ Harvey. (For those asking why, please keep in mind that she’s freaking PJ Harvey…) As part of Harvey’s agreement with BBC, all the show’s contributors—which included Julian Assange, Ralph Fiennes, journalist John Pilger, former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams and Shaker Aamer—were not edited without their consent.

“I saw it as an opportunity to do try to do something unusual with the format and the content of the program,” Harvey said toward the beginning of the program. “I’ve come to realize that a great deal of its content is about censorship in one way or another…I wanted to let them be heard in a manner of their choosing.”
