Bletchley Park - new podcast and newsletter

The WW2 code-breaking institute of Bletchley Park has announced a couple of new innovations this month. The first is a new monthly newsletter, which can be subscribed to via the website at www.bletchleypark.org.uk. The Bletchley Park news page itself is at http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/news/. The first newsletter carries stories on the completion of fundraising to raise £7.4 million to restore the codebreaking huts, the use of the Enigma device in the Spanish Civil War, a family fun day, and more.

The second is a new podcast series, with the first edition carrying an extract from the Annual Turing Lecture given by Captain Jerry Roberts, possibly the only person still alive who intercepted coded messages from Adolf Hitler himself, as well as other news snippets. For more on this visit www.bletchleypark.org.uk/news/docview.rhtm/666615, whilst to access the podcast, visit Audioboo at http://audioboo.fm/channel/bletchley-park - it is just under 21 minutes in length.

(With thanks to Bletchley Park)
