Turing play stays on website indefinitely
Tuesday 10 November 2009
The pioneering internet audio drama about the death of the Enigma code-breaker Alan Turing, is to remain available indefinitely on The Independent website.
The 30-minute play, Turing's Test, starring The History Boys actor Samuel Barnett, is a fictionalised account of the scientist's last moments after taking cyanide following his prosecution for homosexuality.
It is the first drama of its kind to be premiered on a newspaper website and has been widely praised since being launched last month.
Ashley Byrne, creative director of Made in Manchester which produced the drama, said: "This clearly proves that good quality audio drama can be very appealing. The power of speech, sound and our imaginations is alive and well and I'm hopeful we'll be premiering even more ground-breaking radio drama."
Turing's Test is downloadable exclusively from The Independent website at www.independent.co.uk/turing
