Ever since the ancient Greeks, people have been using secret codes to keep their communications private. James Grime will be unraveling some of these ciphers and explaining how mathematicians have changed the course of history by cracking codes. He will demonstrate a genuine WW2 Enigma Cipher Machine and explain how the British code breakers at Bletchley Park managed to achieve the apparently impossible by unlocking the infamous Enigma Code.
