It took a year to produce this comprehensive history of the Triumph Stag. So much information was amassed that the final production ended up as a double disc containing a host of extras sure to please the most ardent Triumph enthusiast. Disc 1 runs for approximately 85 minutes with disc 2 about 100 minutes.
All the known surviving Stag prototypes and many other important early cars were tracked down for this release; we interviewed and spoke to Standard-Triumph engineers who worked on the development of the Stag; Triumph historians gave their input, assistance and advice; and enthusiasts allowed us to film their cars extensively. All this combined with a wealth of historic images and archive film helped to make this production the definitive story of the Triumph Stag.
