||Synopsis: The highs and lows of Alan Turing's life, tracking his extraordinary accomplishments, his government persecution through to his tragic death in 1954. In the last 18 months of his short life, Turing visited a psychiatrist, Dr. Franz Greenbaum, who tried to help him. Each therapy session in this drama documentary is based on real events. The conversations between Turing and Greenbaum explore the pivotal moments in his controversial life and examine the pressures that may have contributed to his early death. The film also includes the testimony of people who actually knew and remember Turing. Plus, this film features interviews with contemporary experts from the world of technology and high science including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. These contributors bring Turing's exciting impact up to the present day, explaining why, in many ways, modern technology has only just begun to explore the potential of Turing's ideas.

It seems that people on IMDb didn't like this. I did. I thought it was
about a lot more than Alan Turing being gay, and I appreciated seeing
this after seeing "The Imitation Game." People keep saying they want
more science. A lot of it would go over people's heads.
It states right in the documentary that what made Turing a genius was
the fact that, although others had broken the Enigma code, no one had
ever broken the German navy code. Turing built a machine to do that. He
also invented the idea of the computer years before its time, even
talking about taking a computer to the park, like a i-phone. The
documentary also shows some of his early inventions.
The documentary's conceit is that Turing (played here by Ed Stoppard)
is talking with a psychiatrist (Henry Goodman), as he goes over his
life. There are interviews with the woman to whom he proposed, Joan,
with the psychiatrist's daughters, Turing's nephew, and others.
I think we learn more about Turing than just that he was gay. That he
was gay is important because after serving his government and,
according to Churchill, shortening the war by two years, he was
chemically castrated. Pretty shabby treatment. The estrogen had an
effect on his brain as well. And we know what happened in the end. A
sad statement about the way heroes are treated.
I think this is a good companion piece to "The Imitation Game," and I
