In actuality, there is not a LOT of footage because of security issues however the Commander of the base, as well as the Colonel who leads the Joint Task Force in charge of security are both briefly interviewed.
This is a well-laid out 7-part presentation, giving background details on the detainees, the conditions of their sequestration (Camps 5, 6 & 7), the "enteral feeding" (not force feeding), and some information on the staff who work there (i.e. Dr. White, Capt. Green, Sgt. Brown, etc.)
Where videos are available, they are at the top of the page. Please be careful to turn down your sound as you start.

What insight are you personally providing by endorsing this mainstream production?

Not that it really matters, and not that I can prove it, but I only assume the name of the location is real because most bases in the Anglo empire are where they purport to be. What I don't assume is that they are all being used for precisely what they are claimed to be used for.
For me, this video represents or imitates a gift to the public. Information is great, but I am so sick of the way they explain things on TV as if we were watching Teletubbies. The military is famous for misleading, obfuscating, deceiving and barring nothing else aggressively spinning. I am not sure what would be the "right" tone but this doesn't feel like it.
