Anybody interested in the history of UK computer science (that's all of us, isn't it?) should make the time (30 mins) to listen to this brilliant programme before it expires* from iPlayer: The Turing Solution (click)

Needless to say I have used the WebIF to extract it from the iPlayer buffer, anybody wishing to access via their media device will find it easier by knowing the time of transmission: BBC Radio 4, 11.00am Tuesday 12th June 2012.

* The iPlayer web page claims it will be available until 1st Jan 2099....??
