One of the great 20th century mathematicians, Alan Turing was a pioneer of computer science who is best remembered as one of the leading code breakers at Bletchley Park during World War II. Turing’s brilliant mathematical insights and innovative thinking helped to break Enigma, the purportedly unbreakable code used by the German military. Join Dr James Grime as he tells the gripping story of both Alan Turing and the Enigma, leading up to this epic battle of man against machine – including a full demonstration of an original WWII Enigma Machine!
