10:02 am
its code are the subject of a new movie. right now our story from anthony mason. >> in 1939, as nazi troops were invading poland and threatening europe, british intelligence secretly moved its code breaking operation to this country estate about an hour outside of london. at bletchley park, the british covertly recruited a team of the country's top cryptograhers to try to crack the german's enigma code. among them a young mathematician named allan turing. >> if the allies broke enigma, well, this would turn in to a very short war indeed. >> in the new film "the imitation game" out next month, benedict cumberbatch plays the mathematics prodigy who would change the course of the second
10:03 am
world war. >> how old are you, mr. turing. >> 27. >> how old were up when you became a fellow at cambridge? >> 24. >> and published this paper that i can barely understand? >> 23. >> you don't think that qualifies you as a certified prodigy? >> well newton discovered theorem aged 22. as far is i can tell i've barely made par. >> that must be sort of intimidating to put that on the screen? >> it is. >> to understand turing's work, cumberbatch familiarized himself with the german's encryption device called the enmig ma machine. >> this is what allan touring was warning against. >> this is the enemy. the crooked hand of death as its called in the film. >> trying to did do that as mathematical problem. >> did he. but he also understood that to
10:04 am
beat a machine you had to use a machine rather than humans. because there just wasn't enough time. >> i like solving problems. and enigma is most difficult problem in the world. >> no, enigma isn't difficult it's impossible. the americans, the russians, the french, the germans, everyone thinks enigma sun breakable. >> good. let me try and we'll know for sure, won't we. >> what was happening here was top secret? >> absolutely top secret. and in fact everybody who worked here kept the secret for 30 years after the war. >> at bletchley park, archivist says the code breaking operation was head quartered in hut eight. >> and this is where alan turing had his office. >> turing and his team worked with captured german machines, the nazis set their codes on the enigma's alphabetic keyboard. >> each time you press it the
10:05 am
light lights up tells you what to write down as your ciphered text. >> the code was reset every day so the cryptograhers had only 24 hours to crack it. the odds one in 159 million, million, million. >> this was turing's concept. >> he came up with the concept, yes. >> he conceived a massive machine that would mathematically eliminate potential code. engineer tony jarvis. >> you've got a column of three vertical. the drums actually replicated one enigma machine. >> this machine still works? >> it does. only one in the word. you want to see it regioning? >> i'd love to see it running. >> absolutely. it took nine months for turing and his team to design and build a prototype.
10:06 am
>> that moment in the film actually gave me goose bumps to think what it must be like the first time it worked and stopped to give the setting for the day. i mean just has literally hairs stood on the back of my neck. >> cracking the cypher allowed british intelligence to decode messages to german uboats that had preyed on allied shipping. it's estimate turing's work shortened the war by two years saving millions of lives. when you think about what he was doing back in the 1940s, how remarkable was it? >> stunning. >> jim hendler professor of computer science has taught a course on turing. >> he revolutionized cryptography, the modern field of computer science, the subfield of artificial intelligence, a lot of the math of those things goes right back
10:07 am
to turing. did he it all essentially in anonymity. very much. during war time he was working under secrecy. >> was the family at all aware of what he was doing here? >> for the first part of the war, the family didn't know even where he was based. >> sir jointuring is alan tougher's nephew. >> even you didn't know. >> we had small black and white tv set to find out what bbc put out a little program on it. that's how we found out. >> but by then the man who created the blueprint for the modern computer had already taken his own life. after the war, turing had become a world class marathon runner. he moved to the university of manchester to do research. but in january 1952, he was arrested and charged with gross
10:08 am
indecency for everything sexual relations with another man. >> however, when he was prosecuted then he was not in denial about it. >> he didn't try to hide it. >> he didn't try to hide it at all. >> turing was sentenced to probation and required to undergo estrogen treatments. then believed to suppress homosexual desires. >> i say it could have been worse. but i still think what happened to him was pretty awful. >> in 1954 turing died after eating an apple dipped in sigh knit. he was 41. it would take nearly 60 years for his reputation to be fully rehabilitated. only last year he was finally pardoned by queen elizabeth. today at bletchley park, now a museum, allan turing is celebrated for what he was, a war hero. with a story like something out
10:09 am
of a movie. >> i'm designing machines that will allow us to break every message, every day. >> it was an epic life. >> really epic life. too short. 41 years of it. we owed him at least double that, i'd say. >> osgood: still to come. the news about treats. hey, how you doin'? it hurts. this is what it can be like to have shingles. a painful blistering rash. if you had chicken pox, the shingles virus is already inside you. as you get older your immune system weakens and it loses its ability to keep the shingles virus in check. i just can't stand seeing him like this. he's in pain. one in three people will get shingles in their lifetime.
10:10 am
the shingles rash can last up to 30 days. i wish that there was something i could do to help. some people with shingles will have long term nerve pain which can last for a few months to a few years. don't wait until someone you love develops shingles. talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your risk. it's in this spirit that ingu u.s. is becoming a new kind of company. one that helps you think differently about what's ahead, and what's possible when you get things organized. ing u.s. is now voya. changing the way you think of retirement. only abreva can heal it in as few as two and a half days when used at the first sign.
10:11 am
it penetrates deep and starts to work immediately to block the virus and protect healthy cells.. don't tough it out, knock it out, fast. abreva. when things go bump in the night,, inspire daring pursuits that thrill and delight, with goodies from petsmart! now, save up to 25% on all halloween treats. and up to 75% on all halloween costumes! petsmart®. c.e.o. does halloween have to be cornucopia of candied calories? not in the opinion of chef rocco dispirito. >> how street this for a treat. household with kids ate less junk food in 2012 than they did five years before. there is a cultural shift in how parents shop which translates in to hire kids eating better. great news, right? well when you read the fine print it turns out those families reduced their purchases by just 101 fewer calories per
10:12 am
person, per day in packaged foods. now that's good but not good enough to steer a child off the path to obesity. in fact the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in kids 10 to 19 years old have actually risen 30% in the last decade. now if you find it hard to digest all those statistics, here's one that will really stick in your craw. roughly 80% of processed foods contain some form of added sugar. so with halloween just around the corner, can i ask why are we filling our kids' goody bags with this? that's right. the average trick-or-treater will collect about 600 grams of sugar roughly three heaping cups full. don't get spooked i'm not suggesting we take away the treats this halloween use a few simple tricks. a cultural shift in your kitchen doesn't mean giving up flavor or fun.
10:13 am
today we're going to tackle the halloween classic the caramel apple. and my first step is to take nonfat milk powder and caramelize it in the oven. now we add toasted milk powder to the blender, a sweetner, stevia a little bit. it's very powerful. next ingredient is coconut nectar like the maple syrup. it's really good for you, has a lot of amino acids and high in fine cher means low glycemic impact. this is a sweetner for you diabetics. the bulk of the sauce is water. we'll add the water. just mix it until it looks homogenized. once its mixed i add butter flavored spray. thick and delicious just like caramel with only one gram of fat per serving versus 4, think about that.
10:14 am
i chose the small apples. look like a treat a kid would like. simply dip in caramel that we just made sprinkle some of your favorite nuts over the top, these are cashews you can use almonds, walnuts. remember, nobody needs to finish all the candy in their bag. and no one's going to miss it when you offer them this. so you see, give your kids a healthy halloween treat no big trick. [ door bell ] >> osgood: ahead. >> some states have laws, some states don't. some people put them in the wills, some don't. >> osgood: when death takes us off line. so anna switched him to iams indoor weight and hairball care. now that he's lost the weight, he's a bit of a show-off. iams indoor weight and hairball care: manages weight and reduces hairballs.

find us in the deli or in-store bakery. also try the complete line of king's hawaiian sandwich rolls. >> osgood: a little scary to think of how much of our lives we spend online. still perhaps to think of digital consequences when we sign off, so to speak. david pogue has the story. >> used to be, you knew what to do with all the memorabilia of your life. you put it in a box to give to your kids or you write it in to your will. but these days, the most complete record of your life may not be in boxes, it may be online. all those photos, videos, daily events on facebook, thoughts on twitter. what happens to all that stuff
10:17 am
when you move on to the great cowboyer cafe in the sky? >> we entered this time as a society where we're a bit ahead of our laws and our policies with respect to our digital property. >> evan carroll is an expert on what happens to our online stuff when we die. they maintain a blog and even written a book. >> some states have laws. some states don't. some people put these things in their wills now. some people don't. there are so many different things that could happen. >> nobody crashed in to that messy state of affairs harder than john berlin. >> just one more memory i wanted -- >> earlier this year on facebook's 10th anniversary it offered every member a beautiful, one-minute musical montage of his or her facebook life. jesse berlin had died in 2012 and his father, john, dearly wanted to see his son's montage video. >> only problem with that was,
