Codebreaker: Patrick Sammon on Alan Turing

August 17, 2012

Alan Turing was only 41 when he committed suicide.  He had already laid the foundations for the computer and artificial intelligence.  As a codebreaker working with British intelligence, he helped save the Allies from the Nazis.  Filmmaker Patrick Sammon's new docu-drama, Codebreaker, tells the story of Alan Turing's brilliant life and of his persecution by British authorities for the crime of being homosexual.
