Alan Turing, the subject of a movie played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and one of the pioneers of modern computing, will soon appear on Britain's 50 pound note.

Turing was selected from a shortlist of scientists, with the public allowed to weigh in.

Turing's work on code breaking during World War Two was depicted in the 2014 movie "The Imitation Game."

To find out more about his selection for the honor of appearing on the 50 pound note, KCBS Radio news anchors Jeff Bell and Patti Reising spoke with Sky News Reporter Enda Brady in London.
