Episode three follows Bletchley Park's Research Historian, Dr David Kenyon, and National Security Agency (NSA) Senior Historian, David Hatch, who will explore the developing relationship the UK and USA shared, contrasting where it worked well and where challenges arose. Kenyon and Hatch will delve into the successes and challenges of this partnership with events such as D-Day showing how sharing signals intelligence can prove beneficial, to challenges in the Pacific theatre with the UK and USA’s contrasted objectives. Additionally, Exhibitions Manager, Erica Munro and Museum Archivist, Dean Annison will be examining objects from the Bletchley Park collection that show the personal stories of UK and USA Codebreakers working together.
