#Turing and his Times (lecture)

The National Museum of Computing has made available an excellent video of a recent lecture called Turing and his Times, which was given at Bletchley Park  on the 26 April 2012 to mark the centenary of the birth of Alan Turing. The lecture features the first public showing of a video commissioned by the National Physical Laboratory of the recollections of two of Turing's colleagues, plus a talk by computer historian Prof Simon Lavington on Turing and his Contemporaries, and  simulation of the Pilot ACE computer by TNMOC trustee Kevin Murrell.
