The May 2014 episode of the Bletchley Park Podcast - A very, very secret place - is out now. We learn about the doomed German plans to invade Britain in 1940, get a taste of what's to come at the Bletchley Park Presents series of Sunday afternoon talks, hear from the real women of Bletchley Park and bring you a Wren's memories of the absolute secrecy. We also take you to the launch of the biography of one of Bletchley Park's lesser known geniuses, Gordon Welchman.

Bletchley Park podcasts are accessible at


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians.

  1. Hi Chris,

    Thank you for posting about The Bletchley Park Podcast. I'm Mark the producer and its great to see it is reaching different groups of people.

    I like to think we are saving & telling our veterans stories for generations to come, to learn from & in a very small way thanking those amazing people for their service during WW2.

    All the best.
