Event Details

A radio play By Lou Beckett

Three episodes first broadcast 17 (Thursday) 7:00 pm – 19 (Saturday) 7:00 pm

“Germany is winning the war, England’s being bombed into oblivion… and MI6 is depending on a small team of girls working in a freezing hut in the English countryside to break Germany’s most secret code.”

Inside Bletchley Park, Dilly Knox enlists a small team of young women to crack some of the enemy’s toughest codes. Whilst Margaret Rock is a trained statistician, the newest recruit is Mavis Lever, 19 years old and a student of German romantic poetry. A friendship develops between this unlikely pair as pressure mounts on them to decipher intercepts which will impact the course of the war. It’s a phenomenal task – “We must know what Hitler knows” – and they work against the clock – and the odds. But it’s not all night shifts and Enigma machines; there are dances, pranks, and even a touch of romance.

Jenny Wren Productions presents the untold true story of two female code-breakers at Bletchley Park at the height of World War II in this brand new radio drama.

Episode 1 of Bletchley Girls will be aired via the Jenny Wren Productions You Tube Channel at 7pm on 17th September,
