This is an opportunity to take a fresh look at the influences on Alan Turing’s life and creativity, and the later creation of a legend. Dermot’s vibrant and entertaining approach to the life and work of a true genius will make this a fascinating talk about the man who was simply nicknamed ‘Prof’ by his codebreaking colleagues at Bletchley Park.
