There are lots of different ways to encrypt a message, from early, simple ciphers to the famous Enigma machine. But it’s tough to make a code truly unbreakable. Hosted by: Michael Aranda SciShow
The Enigma WWII codebreaker Alan Turing (history, the imitation game,...) :
Anthony Mason visits with actor Benedict Cumberbatch to talk about his role as mathematician Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game," a new film recounting Turing's heroic (and tragic) life story.
