Dutch television NOS captured the 'Great Escape' of 2003, recording a 53-minute documentary as Exeter and Swansea battled to stay in the Football on the very last day of the season.
They focused on a family from each club, their life as a supporter as well as interviewing the likes of Cyril the Swan, and other popular faces around the two grounds.
A video has now been uploaded to the Internet allowing you to watch the programme in full, as the film switch back and for from St James' Park to the Vetch, and record the ups and down that both clubs experience during that extraordinary day.
A Vital Swansea member from Holland posted about the programme and said: Yesterday's eve, the documentary of Swansea and Exeter from (i don't know, i think 4 years ago) was now on National TV in Holland to see, but now you saw the documentary with a documentary of how Swansea and Exeter are now!
Some lads in my class said to me that they didn't believe how big a stadium you guys have! (it's a very 'popular' documentary, because a lot of people knew the documentary from 4 years ago!!)
I don't know if you noticed anything of some dutch tv people, but it was a highly-rated tv show yesterday!!
sbrjack translates their TV Guide description of the documentary as:
3 years ago nos sport visited england (and Wales!!), it was the last week where passionate supporters of two clubs Exeter and Swansea had so many hopes. Two results would send the other into the non league status. This documentary underlined that day what was said by both clubs about their hopes.
The link to the video stream is here
Some people have experienced problems watching the video, if you do please get in touch via email at email@example.com or post a comment below.
Vital Swansea member Richard Copp has also posted up a video clip of the Vetch as it is now on youtube. Some painful viewing for some I bet!
