(KHNL) - We're known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

But there's another side that you don't see everyday and it'll soon be the focus of a national television series.

Court TV is capturing the hidden dangers of some of the most popular beaches in the world. Beginning Monday, the cable station will air real, lifeguard stories from Oahu.

"You know it's not Baywatch as we all know, it's real lifeguards doing real work so we hope this opportunity to tell our story is going to be beneficial to everybody," said Ralph Goto, director of the Ocean Safety & Lifeguard Services Division.

They'll be featured on the show, "Beach Patrol", which is in its fourth season.

The series will feature rescues in Waikiki, along with those on the north and east shores of Oahu.

Camera crews followed local lifeguards for two months. Viewers will see eight, half-hour episodes.

"It was different to have people following you around and doing interviews here and there, it's not your daily routine," said Matthew Miller with the Ocean Safety Division.

Officials hope the series will educate people about their jobs and what they go through to keep our beaches safe.
