Some of the video and photo coverage:

Five surviving Colossus Wrens, a Colossus wirer and relatives of key figures in the Breaking of Lorenz were in the audience to witness re-enacted events. Encrypting and decrypting of messages was demonstrated using original and reconstructed equipment including an original Lorenz SZ42 encryption device, the Colossus Rebuild and the reconstructed Tunny machine.
