Tony Comer is the historian for GCHQ (Government Communication Headquarters) and a world expert on the Bletchley Park story.
GCHQ needs a historian as technology moves so rapidly that the organisation needs to be able to keep hold of its foundations, that knowing about what happened in the past lets the analysts understand what is important today.
