E141 - Security & Insecurity

August 2022 

This month instead of commemorating a World War 2 Anniversary, we have decided to do something a little different as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Bletchley Park Podcast. 

So after 10 years and more than 170 hours of content, we decided to answer our most frequently asked question, “How was Bletchley Park kept secret?”.

Such a ‘big question’ would be too much for just one historian to answer, so this month we have three. Our Research Historian, Dr David Kenyon & Research Officer, Dr Thomas Cheetham are joined by GCHQ’s former Departmental Historian, Tony Comer as they delve into Bletchley Park’s wartime Security & Insecurity. 

Special thanks to Dr Ben Thompson for voicing our archival documents.

This episode features Wyn Ribchester from our Oral History Archive.

Producers Note:
We would like to thank everyone who has helped to create the show over the last decade. The list is far too long for here, but I’ve included many of them in the middle of this show. 

Finally, the biggest thank you has to go out to our loyal listeners; we have so much fun making these shows for you. Thanks for sticking with us and here’s to the next 10 years.
