The Ref Show – The Fifth Assistant

Hosted every Monday by sports pundit, Alan Biggs, The Ref Show features a variety of different footballing guests to discuss the weekends Football referee’s performances.

Presented by media channel The Ref Online, we have been producing The Ref Show for the past three years. Working closely with The Ref Online, we are able to make creative changes to keep the show up to date and exciting.

“The people behind the decisions”

Shooting the show on our green screen allows us to create a purpose built virtual studio unique for The Ref Show itself. The versatility and flexibility of the green screen allows us to feature relevant information being discussed on the show as well as update and change the studio to a new look if desired.

To keep the show as relevant to the prior weekends matches as possible, the show has a very quick turn around time. From set up, filming, vision mixing, editing and post production, including inputting the virtual studio and additional graphics, we turn the project around in less than a day.


With the variety of opinions surrounding the sport, The Ref Show allows discussions between football professionals you may never have been able to see anywhere else.

As a host of famous and opinionated sporting faces walk through the studio doors every Monday morning, including, Gary Megson, Mark Lawrenson, Mark Halsey and Roger Dilkes, we always know we’re in for a fun and interesting show.
