Event Details

Join us to explore the extraordinary life and legacy of Alan Turing, codebreaking pioneer during the years of the Second World War, now an icon appearing on the latest £50 note. Was he in fact really a codebreaker? What is the significance of Alan Turing’s trial, his suicide and the Royal Pardon? What did he make of AI? His nephew Dermot Turing uncovers the real man behind the myth, from Turing‘s family roots in Scotland and India to codebreaking at Bletchley Park and beyond, revealing many little-known facts: his mixed-race heritage, the importance of women in his career, and his courage, humour and defiance. Join him to discover a fresh legacy of Alan Turing for the 21st century.

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
