Code-Breakers: Bletchley Park's Lost Heroes (2011)

Documentary that reveals the secret story behind one of the greatest intellectual feats of World War II, a feat that gave birth to the digital age. In 1943, a 24-year-old maths student and a GPO engineer combined to hack into Hitler's personal super-code machine - not Enigma but an even tougher system, which he called his 'secrets writer'. Their break turned the Battle of Kursk, powered the D-Day landings and orchestrated the end of the conflict in Europe. But it was also to be used during the Cold War, which meant both men's achievements were hushed up and never officially recognised.
