THE Premier League’s main UK broadcasters have held talks over a new documentary on the lives of top-flight referees.
A fresh report has claimed that an “independent production company are understood to have pitched the programme” to the three domestic rights holders.
However, they also add that the Professional Game Match Officials Limited [PGMOL] are yet to sign it off.
And he has attempted to make the body more open and “may be receptive to the idea” of the doc.

Webb recently linked up with Michael Owen in the newly launched Match Officials Mic’d Up programme, explaining controversial VAR and refereeing decisions using audio from in-game conversations between officials.
The premise of the documentary pitch is believed to be “an attempt to humanise referees”.
It is also hoping to give football fans a better understanding of how officials carry out their duties and the pressures they face.
The would-be producers want to film referee training sessions as well as pre and post-game meetings.

But the Premier League would also need to give their approval as producer want to use unseen footage from games.
The Mail says that a source close to the referees said: “It’s a great idea.
“It would show a different side to them. How hard it is. The pressure they’re under.
“To officiate a Premier League is not easy. One error and you’re vilified. So something such as this might help people see a different side to officials.”
With a new month almost here, Amazon Prime members can look forward to a refreshed selection of games with the October Prime Gaming library. In the spookiest of months, Prime Gaming is offering a fitting supernatural adventure, Korean horror, a monstrous prom, and more to celebrate the Halloween season. As usual, these games can be claimed from the Prime Gaming hub , and subscribers can also grab some extra loot in October for several online multiplayer games.
Prime Gaming free games for October 2023
- Ghostwire: Tokyo
- The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters Deluxe Edition
- Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp
- The Textorcist
- Super Adventure Hand
The marquee title for October is easily Ghostwire: Tokyo , a fun first-person spell-slinger in which you can run around Tokyo busting malevolent ghosts haunting the Shibuya district. Formerly a PlayStation and PC exclusive, Ghostwire: Tokyo arrived on Xbox Series X|S several months ago. Developed by Tango Gameworks, the same studio behind Hi-Fi Rush and The Evil Within, Ghostwire: Tokyo is a stylish romp through an open-world section of Tokyo that hides plenty of secrets, spectres, and threats that you’ll have to manage while weaving spells. It’s not terribly frightening, but it does have several great jump-scares mixed in with its action.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a more terrifying game in comparison, as this Korean survival-horror game tasks you with leaving a deserted school and surviving the horrors that lurk in the night. You’ll need to use everything at your disposal to avoid a demoness hellbent on murdering you, explore the surrounding Sehwa district, and uncover the shadow realm’s dark secrets in this stylish game where you’ll never feel safe.
For something that won’t put you in danger of cardiac arrest, there’s Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp , a multiplayer dating sim with wonderful art and humor. Like the previous game, you’ll be romancing your way through a summer camp filled with new and familiar monster faces while making use of the campfire mechanics to find your one true love. Then there’s The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibia , a punishing and brutal bullet hell game where you’ll have to dodge projectiles and type out exorcisms.
GRUNND is a handcrafted mystery adventure where you travel through a town that appears ordinary on the surface but has a surreal and twisted nature lurking beneath that facade. A blend of narrative-driven noir and sci-fi, this unnerving adventure sees you uncovering hidden agendas and lurking gods. Lastly, Super Adventure Hand is a bizarre handventure game in which you control an appendage across several gripping 3D platforming stages. It sounds like a handful, but at least it’s a fun premise.
Amazon Prime members can also grab a selection of Halloween skins, in-game currency, and more for games like Asphalt 9: Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare 2, Dead by Daylight, Diablo IV, Roblox, and more in October. Subscribers can also stream a handful of games at no extra charge throughout the month via the Prime Gaming Channel on Amazon Luna. The list of games includes Devil May Cry 5, Trackmania, Orbital Bullet, Dusk, and Bee Simulator.
If you’re interested in the freebies but don’t have a Prime membership, new members can sign up for a free 30-day trial . Even if you aren’t eligible, you could always grab a one-month membership for $15 to claim these games. Once you claim them, they are yours to keep forever.

Prime Video has big plans for the Southeast Asia region, including the introduction of channels and an expanded local-language content slate, the streamer’s Vice President, Asia Pacific, Gaurav Gandhi, told the APOS conference today.
Gandhi, who headed Prime Video India before being appointed to lead the wider APAC region in April, confirmed what Prime Video VP International Kelly Day mentioned at APOS yesterday, that channels and TVOD will be added to the streamer’s offering in Southeast Asia. Gandhi was speaking on a panel with David Simonsen, Prime Video Director, Southeast Asia, and Aparna Purohit, Head of Originals, India & SEA.
“We’ve always said we’re not just about the core SVOD service, but we’re also a content hub and marketplace with TVOD and channels,” said Gandhi, who relocated from Mumbai to Singapore in his new role. “We’re at different growth stages across the region – obviously we’ve been investing in Japan and India for a while, and we’re now getting started with David’s team here in building out Southeast Asia.”
At the same time as bringing partnerships and third-party channels to the service, Gandhi said Prime Video would also be looking at how to expand the local-language content slate in Southeast Asia, adding to the streamer’s long-established local output in India and Japan.
Purohit, who previously headed originals in India and has also had her brief expanded to take in Southeast Asia, talked about how she aims to bring some of the expertise gained in India to the region – with a focus on Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand.
“When we started out in India, we realised we needed to start building a community of writers, and we brought in consultants, writers and directors from outside India to help on some of our shows,” Purohit said. “That really helped to fuel the entire creative economy of the country and I’m excited to bring some of those initiatives here.”
Prime Video was one of the first global streamers to produce Indian shows that were well received internationally, with several breakout hits including Mirzapur , Inside Edge , Breathe and Made In Heaven . That strong track record continued this year with Raj & DK’s thriller Farzi and Vikramaditya Motwane’s period drama Jubilee . The Indian team also recently moved into unscripted with documentaries and reality show Mission Start Ab , following a group of young entrepreneurs.
Acknowledging that Southeast Asia is not homogenous, “every country has its specific nuances”, Purohit also said she was “excited about the possibilities” in the region and had recently met creators in Thailand where she felt the talent and passion “really transcended all barriers of language and nationality”.
She added that Prime Video already has strong teams on the ground in Southeast Asia and that the three territories the streamer is initially focusing on – Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand – are already “such prolific media and entertainment industries, with phenomenal talent. I’m just excited to build on that.”
While saying it was too early to announce specific projects, Purohit said the strategy in each territory is to develop “authentic and rooted” stories. “We just want to work for the audience and understand their preferences and taste,” Purohit said.
On the product and partnership side, Simonsen explained that Prime Video has spent the past year building out teams in Singapore and across the region, learning about engagement and acquisition strategies along the way.
“On the other side of the coin, we’ve been a little slow with some of our product infrastructure and it took us a while to get online with our payments, which is critical in this market,” he added. “But that came on board in Q2 this year and has made a big impact on the business.”
Prime Video initially focused on APAC markets such as India and Japan where it can offer the full range of Prime membership benefits, including shopping and fast delivery. Those services are not currently available in Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand, but Gandhi said the goals in terms of delivering a quality experience are the same: “We don’t see it as a barrier, it’s an opportunity to build a branded subscription service for Amazon in markets where we haven’t had that previously.”
Purohit said she’s optimistic that originals from this region can find an international audience. Citing Indian shows like Farzi and Made In Heaven , for which 20% of viewership is coming from outside India, she said: “The linguistic palette of pretty much every viewer has expanded and everyone’s watching content in more than three or four languages now. I truly believe that the next big global hit is coming from this part of the world.”
