S01E22 - Unsung Heroes

Topics: Sir Nicholas Winton saves 700 Czech children from invading Nazi German but never even tells his family. He is knighted once his story breaks. Alan Turing invents computing, the foundations of AI, and, with a small team, secretly shaves two years off of WWII in Europe with modern machine-driven encryption. He is later castrated for being a homosexual but does get an OBE. O-o-o-kay.
