Bletchley Park Teleprinter Hall

Bletchley Park decided to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in 2019 with the opening of a new exhibition designed to reveal the role played by Bletchley codebreakers around the 1944 landings in Normandy, France.

The exhibition, located in Bletchley Park’s Teleprinting Building, presented a challenge for installation, as this part of the estate was also undergoing significant restoration. PLB were tasked with designing the exhibition and engaged DJW to design and install the AV and Lighting.

The exhibition needed to cover two spaces. The first was an introductory gallery, focusing on the lead up to the D-Day landings on 6th June 1944. The second was a timed immersive, cinematic experience that brought together the full impact of the intelligence provided by Bletchley Park.

To create the 22m curved screen, five Epson EB-L1105U laser projectors with short throw lenses were installed, overlapping and masking off each area to create a seamless, single image. The film itself is 12 minutes long and uses footage, images and documents from Bletchley’s vast archive collection, along with animated scenes, to create a full picture of events. At times, the film uses all projection surfaces together, creating a single powerful image and in turn a fully immersive experience. Mapping the content onto the curved wall with a total of thirty-three screens was a challenge but the end result is a compelling and memorable summary of Bletchley Park’s role in the success of D-Day.
