Colossus was the world’s first programmable computer which played a huge role in deciphering the German Lorenz ciphers – used by Hitler and the German High Command. And yet even its existence was unknown until comparatively recently. A replica has now been constructed at Bletchley Park and in this talk Oxford Mathematician James Hanson will explain the thinking behind Colossus, the role it played and how it inspired post-war computer development at Manchester University. James is Head of Senior Boys at the Royal School.

This talk is at the Haslemere Museum
