Enigma: the unbreakable but broken.
Alan Watson - Retired - Merchant Navy Officer
Though the Enigma story is well known this talk will cover the aspects less well known; why the machine was developed, how it works, its genius and the sheer enormity of breaking the code. The talk will put the Enigma into perspective with developments at the time with some incredible twists in the story of how and why they were developed. Four different Enigma machines will be on display including an original German machine.
Alan Watson is a former Merchant Navy Radio officer. His duties included codes and ciphers led him into the Enigma story long before it became public knowledge. In “retirement”, he divides his time between development and testing of radar, teaching, skippering HMS Medusa (a WW2 warship) and Royal Navy training vessels.

How to save the world?
Ed Conway - Journalist and Author
We are barely out of the last financial crisis and yet we seem to be lurching into another. Why? One possibility is the way we run the global economy. Is there a smart fix?
Intriguingly there was one occasion in history (Bretton Woods) where politicians met to try and achieve precisely that. This is their story - and some thoughts on whether there are any lessons we could take from them and the process.
