Dr Hannah Fry on Ada Lovelace.

Science Dr Hannah Fry has a new BBC Four documentary on Thursday about Ada Lovelace. Which is, well it is, isn't it?
"Ada Lovelace was a most unlikely computer pioneer. In this film, Dr Hannah Fry tells the story of Ada's remarkable life. Born in the early 19th century Ada was a countess of the realm, a scandalous socialite and an 'enchantress of numbers'. The film is an enthralling tale of how a life infused with brilliance, but blighted by illness and gambling addiction, helped give rise to the modern era of computing."
If you're as much of a fan of Fry's work as I am, you might like this collection of talks I put together earlier in the year.
