He broke the Nazis’ Enigma code, almost invented the computer, and was persecuted to a painful suicide by the ungrateful authorities.

Alan Turing: tortured genius and modern martyr.

We (belatedly) celebrate his birthday (23 June 1912) with a walk from Manchester University, taking in the site where the computer was invented and where he worked, on to the cinema where he met his nemesis and his statue in the Gay Village.
