Cape Town – Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is a behind-the-scenes documentary giving viewers a glimpse behind the making of HBO's fantasy drama series that M-Net (DStv 101) will broadcast this coming Monday morning at 03:00 at the same time as in the United States, and again on Monday during prime time at 21:00.

It is a "must-watch" for viewers who have been fans of the series for close to a decade and will explore the creation of the final season, revealing the tears and triumphs behind-the-scenes in Northern Ireland and the studios, fields and car parks where the last six episodes were filmed.

The documentary is a Glimmer Films production for HBO, directed and produced by Jeanie Finlay. It will also be available on Showmax from 21:00 on Monday, 27 May.


Episodes of Game of Thrones broadcast on M-Net (DStv 101) are currently available on DStv Now and Showmax.
