A Two-Hour Feature Documentary Chronicling the Making of the GOT Final Season

Game of Thrones: The Last Watch | Monday, May 27 at 11.00am and 8.30pm AEST | Stream on Foxtel Now or watch on FOX SHOWCASE


On Monday, May 27, HBO documentary film Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will stream in Australia exclusively on Foxtel Now and screen on FOX SHOWCASE, from 11.00am AEST with a primetime encore at 8.30pm AEST.

The feature-length special and HBO’s gift to GoT fans worldwide delves deep into the mud and blood, to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and carparks of Northern Ireland.

For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of Game of Thrones, chronicling the creation of season eight, the hit show’s most ambitious and complicated season.

Made with unprecedented access, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers.

Much more than a making of documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world – and then have to say goodbye to it.

Jeanie Finlay’s previous credits include the documentaries Seahorse, Orion: The Man Who Would Be King, Pantomime, The Great Hip Hop Hoax, Sound It Out and Goth Cruise. Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is her eighth feature film.

Weiss, Bernadette Caulfield; producers, Jeanie Finlay, Rachel Hooper, Martin Mahon; editor, Alice Powell; filmed by Jeanie Finlay, Mark Bushnell, Louise Liddy, Aaron Black, Richard Jephcote; composer, Hannah Peel.
