    watched the film when it came out it was absolute beggars belief that they could do that to a man , who the whole of the world owed a great debt to him and his team for what they managed to do . a truly great mind wasted because of a religious belief that was a law

    Big respect to this gentleman! Just shows how biased the media are and authorities to hold back such a sad but interestingly wonderful story of a remarkable man.

    The brilliant man who developed the Turing machine! The machine he invented was the basis for the first computers, life wouldn’t be the same if he hadn’t cracked enigma and had such a passion for his work 😁

    Making apologies to men long dead, over laws that were present in a radically different world, this is national embarrassment, not our history.

    An incredible man who had a love for his country so deep that he sacraficed everything his time his life his beliefs his whole being. Alan Turing was a national hero who we should celebrate every year ... We celebrate guy Fawkes and Halloween ..... I'd celebrate A.T day proudly what a remarkable man ....

    Time to America to do the same and bring everything about Nicola Tesla out, ask for forgiveness for everything he went through because of Edson and bring his studies to light.
