Tonight, I will be airing something very special on Reach this evening (Saturday).
A company called Jenny Wren Productions were meant to be performing Bletchley Girls as a stage play, touring in May and June 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic put a stop to that, so they adapted it and recorded it as an audio play during lockdown.
It's so great that they have thought outside the box and still found a way to perform the play this year! Please tune in this evenong from 10pm - Midninght or on Replay afterwards to listen to this fantastic radio drama!
Inside Bletchley Park, Dilly Knox enlists a small team of women to crack some of the enemy’s toughest codes. Whilst Margaret Rock is a trained statistician, the newest recruit is Mavis Lever, 19 years old and a student of German romantic poetry. A friendship develops between this unlikely pair as pressure mounts on them to decipher intercepts which will impact the course of the war. It’s a phenomenal task – “We must know what Hitler knows” – and they work against the clock – and the odds. But it’s not all night shifts and Enigma machines; there are dances, pranks, and even a touch of romance.
Jenny Wren Productions presents this brand new radio drama based on the untold true story of two female code-breakers at Bletchley Park at the height of World War II.
