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.

Introduced by

Dr Richard R. MullerProfessor of Military History and Dean of Academics at the USAF School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS) at Maxwell AFB, Alabama who will speak on Enigma, Blethley Park, Film and Reality.
