Leyton Orient subject of Italian reality show

They are not giants of European football, so it might come as a surprise to some that Leyton Orient are the subject of a reality TV show in Italy, with a playing contract up for grabs.

Orient's owner, Francesco Becchetti, said the programme will help the club find new players and boost its profile, but with the team experiencing its worst season for a decade, some fans are unconvinced.

BBC London sports reporter Chris Slegg spoke to Mr Becchetti, Tom Davies from the Leyton Orient Fans' Trust and Orient fan Jim Nichols.
