For over a century, GCHQ has been at the forefront of national security. Timandra Harkness delves into the secretive world of the intelligence agency past and present with a senior GCHQ representative and Science Museum curator Elizabeth Bruton, who has been unearthing treasures from the collections for the Science Museum’s Group’s Top Secret: From ciphers to cyber security exhibition. Uncovering the rich personal and technological stories that have underpinned secret communications over the past century, we explore the intrigue of espionage, consider the major challenges and opportunities facing those working at the heart of the nation’s security today and examine the trends that could shape tomorrow.
The Science Industry Musuem are hosting the Top Secret exhibition from 19 May – 31 August 2021. Find out more here.
