The Strange Life and Death of Dr Turing
Alan Turing was a brilliant mathematician, wartime master codebreaker and inventor of the computer. He was a visionary genius who saw no reason why true "thinking machines" could not be built in our lifetime. Turing was also a political and moral innocent. Openly homosexual, he was convicted of gross indecency in 1952. Two years later he killed himself by cyanide poisoning at the age of 41. Producer Christopher Sykes Series editor Jana Bennett
