Documentary that reveals the secret story behind one of the greatest intellectual feats of World War II, a feat that gave birth to the digital age. In 1943, a 24-year-old maths student and a GPO engineer combined to hack into Hitler's personal super-code machine - not Enigma but an even tougher system, which he called his 'secrets writer'. Their break turned the Battle of Kursk, powered the D-day landings and orchestrated the end of the conflict in Europe. But it was also to be used during the Cold War - which meant both men's achievements were hushed up and never officially recognised.
This episode, we explore at the science behind an innovative hydrogen fuel cell-powered car, and then take it out for a spin. We will also have a closer examination at a robotic hand with life-like movement. And later, we go for a run with a jetpack which that gives sprinters a boost. It is science fiction meets reality.
