If anyone is interested in Turing as a person, his motivation and esp. the implications of being gay and in a Government position during the 40s and 50s, then BBC Film did an adaptation of Breaking The Code starring Derek Jacobi. While it is a dramatisation, and therefore not to be taken as gospel, it does bring his to life as a person, and should be reccomended for that.
