I don't know if it's the same play, but those of you in the UK can see
Breaking the Code, on BBC1 on Wednesday, 5th February. Apparently 'times
vary' but here in Lancashire it's on at 10.30pm. It's about Alan Turing, and
stars Derek Jacobi in a performance which Chris Riley of the Telegraph
describes as 'mesmerising and very moving'. (Those rationalists amongst you
may choose to find it merely jolly good.)

(As an aside, in searching for the times of the above I came across a
program this Tuesday on BBC2 about game theory: The Numbers Game, at 7.10pm)
