Amazon Prime Video What's On November

With more than 90 million books sold worldwide, The Wheel of Time is one of the most popular and epic fantasy series of all time, set in a sprawling world where magic exists but only certain women are allowed to access it. The story follows Moiraine, played by award-winning Rosamund Pike, as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with the prophesied Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity. New Zealander Zoë Robins joins the journey that sets off November 19, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

One of the most important feature-documentaries to watch, Burning takes an unflinching look at the deadly Australian bushfires of 2019/20, known as ‘Black Summer’. From the lens of Academy and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Eva Orner, the documentary has just been awarded the Sydney Film Festival Sustainable Future Award which recognises narrative that deepen our knowledge and awareness of the impact of the global climate emergency. Burning is an exploration of what happened as told from the perspective of victims of the fires, activists and scientists. A grueling but necessary glimpse to our future November 26.

Get a definitive look at the creation of the English Premier League and rapid evolution told through the lens of footballing icons such as Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Vinnie Jones and Alan Shearer in Fever Pitch: The Rise of the Premier League kicking off November 5.
