Over the course of THE WATCH, four one-hour episodes, the lives of four people – Cheetoh, Bill, Dave, and Brooks — each living in separate remote locations, enduring isolation, are revealed to surveillance cameras capturing their every move. Utilizing fixed and their own hand-held cameras, viewers will be privy to each of their movements as their stories unfold. Watch Brooks as she refurbishes and restores Rack Rock Lighthouse. They’re all keeping a cautious watch over their domain…and are being watched by you.
The Watch is produced by National Geographic Studios for National Geographic.
