The computer age dawns : the secret pioneers http://tinyurl.com/655xs The computer age dawns : the secret pioneers
Some of the boldest early steps into the computer age were taken in Britain.

Soon afterwards the code breakers enlisted another unlikely recruit... a Post Office engineer named Tommy Flowers, who was to play a crucial role in the development of modern computing.
