You are absolutely correct Allan. A brilliant programme. About 20 years ago TV channel 4 presented a series of 4 programmes about Bletchley Park - station X. I was spellbound by what was then something of which few knew. Unfortunately, my mind did not work as quickly as the programme did and we had no recording device. We bought a recorder player but too late so I wrote to Channel 4 and asked if I could buy the video. They replied saying it was not their production to sell but they gave me an address. I wrote to the film producers who sent me all 4 parts on two videos and also included a video of the programme "Longitude". These three videos were sent to me free of charge.
I repeatedly played and replayed the Station X videos and could hardly believe what was being achieved. The series was based upon a book written by Michael Smith.
Just how much we owe men such as Dilly Knox, Bill Tutte, Tommy Flowers and of course Allan Turin cannot be measured.
