Originally broadcast as a 90-minute film in the evening on 5th February 1997, edited into three-parts for the broadcast on Scene a few weeks later.

From the teacher's notes

"This is a play about two types of code - the Enigma code and the Social code - both of which Alan Turing breaks. Study of the play should focus on these two codes, and how they are represented in parallel. Between then, the two codes create a tragic inevitability - the more Turing is indispensable to the state, the more his personal relationships and behaviour become a potential threat." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1997 p.33.
