Channel 4 documentary on Swindon Town's 1992/93 promotion season, first broadcast in 1994.

Swindon progressed well during the 1991–92 season, Glenn Hoddle's first full season as manager, and just missed out on the Second Division play-offs, having briefly led the table in the autumn. A year later they beat Leicester City 4–3 in the new Football League Division One play-off final to achieve promotion to the FA Premier League — bringing top-division football to the club for the first time.

Hoddle moved to Chelsea before the 1993-94 Premier League season began, and was replaced by assistant John Gorman, but Swindon never adjusted to the pace of Premier League football. They were relegated after recording only five wins and conceding 100 goals — the latter record has yet to be broken
