Watch the Junior Filmmakers Video here.

The video is about digging up a time capsule containing information about the work of Alan Turing when a Grandma was working at Bletchley park during the war which she was reminiscing about what they had achieved there. The grandma explained how she intercepted messages from the Germans and passed them onto the coding tea. The video is also about how the Germans had a coding machine called enigma that encrypted messages before they were sent.

The Grandma explained that Alan had invented the bomb machine that went through all the possible permutations so they could read all the daily German enigma traffic.
