From the jacket: This engrossing biographical drama tells the story of Alan Turing, the British mathmatician who won praise from Winston Churchill for cracking the German code called Enigma during World War II. Despite all he had done for his country, Mr. Turing's life ends tragically when he admints his homosexuality to the police while reporting a routine burglary and they are duty-bound to prosecute him. A heartbreaking account of an honorable character led to his doom by a bigoted era.

My copy includes photos of the original cast, lead by Derek Jacobi.
