New Turing Film

A new short film about Alan Turing’s contribution to the birth of the modern computer and his work in Britain following the war is now available. Based on Turing’s work with the National Physics Laboratory (NPL), the film features Tom
Vickers, who knew Turing and worked on the Pilot ACE at the Laboratory. Almost single-handedly put together by Tom’s
granddaughter Harriet Vickers, it has now appeared, and is a super little
window on the history of the computer – see:
