This episode is called “Theatre of Dreams” and Griffin Park itself takes centre stage.
Fans recall the days when the terraces were full, when the Royal Oak was in its heyday and when you needed to turn up early to guarantee you’d get into the ground. And then there were the relegation years when just a few thousand fans would turn up, rattling around the near empty ground, the die-hards who would recall the former glory days while hoping for better days to come.
There’s talk of the ground itself, the dire toilets, the old fashioned floodlights and magic of the evening games as well as memories of proud moments on the terraces.
Finally, fans talk about what the club and ground have meant to them over the years, their feelings about leaving Griffin Park and their hopes for the future of this wonderful club.

The music was written and performed by Robb Johnson.
Push Up Brentford is an oral history project set up to commemorate the last year the club will play at Griffin Park, their home for 116 years.
We have interviewed fans, young and old, as well as players and managers to uncover their personal stories.
We have created a fascinating living history of Brentford Football Club, starring the people who have made it such a special place over the years.
The project is run by volunteers, many of them Brentford fans, and supported by Arts and Education charity, digital:works.
The project was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Brentford Football Club.
Produced by digital:works.
