National Evening of Science on Screen
Alan Turing (Cumberbatch), mathematical genius, is tasked with unraveling the Enigma Code with a team of other gifted cryptographers. Alan, closeted, bullied, and accustomed to working alone, alienates the rest of the team and decides to build a machine to decode transmissions rather than working on them by hand like the others.
Every delay means more lives are lost in the war. The team must find a way to work together despite their differences, pressure from their bosses, and a possible spy in their midsts.
Dr Richard R. MullerProfessor of Military History and Dean of Academics at the USAF School of
