Began his career in advertising as an assistant producer and turned to amateur filmmaking in the late 1950s. In the mid-1960s Watkins was commissioned by BBC-TV to make two feature-length "docudramas" incorporating a quasi-newsreel style and nonprofessional actors. The second of these, "The War Game" (1966), graphically portrayed the nightmare of nuclear war and was banned from broadcast. It was subsequently released in theaters and earned a Best Documentary Oscar in 1966.
