the secrets of cracking the Nazi Enigma cipher.
In 1939 with the threat of war looming, a small team of scholars turned code breakers arrived at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire, their mission was not only to crack Hitler's “Unbreakable” Cipher Machine, but also a large number of lower-level German systems as well as those for Hitler’s allies.
Step back in time at Bletchley Park and enjoy highly atmospheric soundscapes playing snatches of conversations, music, laughter and even a hint of romance, as well as the noises of bicycle bells and steam trains to conjure up how it would have sounded during WW2.
