CCTV: Caught on Camera

Show Details

The residents of Southampton’s 19 council-owned tower blocks are monitored by CCTV 24 hours a day. We take a look at life on both sides of the lens, as we meet the tenants whose lives are under constant surveillance – and the CCTV operators, whose job it now is to monitor their every move.

CCTV offers a unique insight into human nature at its best – and more often – at its worst, in this revealing look at day-to-day life in a high rise, where privacy has been sacrificed in return for the promise of increased security. How do the people being watched feel about the deal that’s been struck, who are these people who are increasingly watching us, and are the cameras actually making us any safer?
