Bletchley Girls is based on the untold true story of two women at Bletchley Park, 19 year old Mavis Lever, a student of German Romantic Poetry and her colleague, Margaret Rock, a statistician. Girls couldn't be codebreakers, so they were classed as linguists. Listen to the play to hear their remarkable story.
