Give specific examples.2) What type of organization does Commander Dennisen believe he has created, Mechanistic or Organic? Is he correct? Why or why not?Cast:Charles Dance (Links to an external site.)-Cdr. Alastair Denniston (Links to an external site.)Benedict Cumberbatch (Links to an external site.)-Alan Turing (Links to an external site.)Keira Knightley (Links to an external site.)-Joan Clarke (Links to an external site.)Matthew Goode (Links to an external site.)-Hugh Alexander (Links to an external site.)Matthew Beard (Links to an external site.)-Peter Hilton (Links to an external site.)Plot:When Britain declares war on Germany in 1939, Alan Turing travels to Bletchley Park. Under the direction of CommanderAlastair Denniston (Links to an external site.), he joins the cryptography team ofHugh Alexander (Links to an external site.),John Cairncross (Links to an external site.),Peter Hilton (Links to an external site.), Keith Furman and Charles Richards. The team aretrying to analyze (Links to an external site.)theEnigma machine (Links to an external site.), which the Nazis use to send coded messages.Turing is difficult to work with, and considers his colleagues inferior; he works alone to designa machine (Links to an external site.)to decipher Enigma messages. After Denniston refuses to fund construction of the machine, Turing writes to Prime MinisterWinston Churchill (Links to an external site.), who puts Turing in charge of the team and funds the machine.Turing’s machine, which he names Christopher, is constructed, but cannot determine the Enigma encryption settings quickly enough; the Germans reset them each day. Denniston orders it to be destroyed and Turing fired, but the other cryptographers threaten to leave if Turing goes.After overhearing a conversation with a female clerk about messages she receives, Turing has anepiphany (Links to an external site.), realizing he can program the machine to decode words he already knows exist in certain messages. After he recalibrates the machine, it quickly decodes a message and the cryptographers celebrate. Turing realizes they cannot act on every decoded message or the Germans will realize Enigma has been broken.Scenes from this Clip:Alan Turing is hired by Commander DennisenDescription of the Enigma machineCommander Dennisen makes his wishes clear and Turing goes over his headThe Cryptography Team is successful at their missionThe Cryptography Team faces the ultimate moral dilemma
