BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera takes a look at computers and spies, from the breaking of the Nazi codes at Bletchley Park to the controversial espionage of today’s internet age.

Corera explains how the work of Turing and others at Bletchley Park in the Second World War led to the birth of electronic espionage and helped to win that war. It led to the spy hunting of the Cold War years and to today’s data-driven pursuit of terrorists and industrial-scale cyber espionage against corporations. Corera has gathered stories from heads of state, hackers and spies on all sides to show how computers and spies are shaping our future.

Corera is the BBC’s security correspondent and has presented major BBC documentaries on GCHQ, the US National Security Agency and cyber security. He is author of The Art of Betrayal: Life and Death in the British Secret Service and Shopping for Bombs: The Rise and Fall of the AQ Khan Network.
