Malvern's touchscreen tech secrets now on your radar

It was dubbed "the hidden Bletchley" after the place where World War Two codebreakers cracked the German's Enigma Code.

The Telecommunications Research Establishment at Malvern in Worcestershire is the place where scientists fine-tuned radar that helped lead the Allies to victory.

During the Cold War scientific leaps that are now part of everyday life were developed there, such as touchscreen technology.

The buildings where all this happened are now being demolished but the Malvern Radar & Technology History Society are hoping a new educational science centre will be built in their place.
