I was there

Re John Fernadez' comments on the technical limitations of the time, I worked on Triangle as a young sound assistant, and I believe the control track problems were mostly caused by the motion of the ship in rough seas and the effect this had on the motors in the VPR20 video recorders. We had 3 of these on board at any one time - the 2 not in use were usually broken down and were repaired by a vision engineer called Dave Hume who sat in a tiny cabin all day surrounded by polystyrene cups (blutacked to the nearest flat surface!) full of small screws and widgets removed from the sick machines. I guess we were really lucky that Dave didn't suffer from seasickness! An unsung hero,I feel.
