This is the most impressive TriumphDVD production to date and despite being a feature mainly on the Spitfire and GT6 quite naturally covers the Triumph Herald to a fairly large extent. And as it is being released during the 50th anniversary of the Herald it is fitting that the chassis engineer on the Herald gives us his insights into the development of this car within the extra feature 'The Men Behind The Motors'. The main disc runs for approximately 80 minutes, the extras disc about 90 minutes.

Every different model within the Spitfire/GT6 range is covered along with the Works race and rally programmes which garnered much praise for the Standard Triumph marque. Helping tell the story this time are:- Graham Robson - Triumph Competitions Secretary at the time of the Spitfire programme. Gordon Birtwistle - Triumph High Speed Test Engineer and 'Deputy Competitions Supervisor' during Spitfire race and rally period. Tony Lee - Chief Development Engineer. Ralph Wigginton - Herald Project Engineer (Chassis).

Dave Keepax - Triumph stylist and the man responsible for (amongst many other things) the wonderful instrumentation for all Triumph models from 1966 to the end. John Ashford - Triumph stylist. Richard Hunt - Triumph stylist. Bernard Robinson - editor of the Triumph Sports Six Club magazine 'The Courier' and Works Triumph historian. Mark Field - Jigsaw Racing Services and owner of ex-works rally car ADU 7B and the reconstructed race car, ADU 1B. Dave Pearson - Canley Classics who not only owns the ex-works race car ADU 4B but also the Macau Racer and houses Bill Bradley's rally car ADU 5B. Nigel Thom once again gives us his smooth narration which has become a hallmark of the TriumphDVD 'Code Name' series.
