I noticed there is also a clip on the Enigma Machine from Numberphile.

I saw that movie.
Here’s a bit of trivia:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0157583/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv

Mick Jagger owned an original four-rotor Enigma encoding machine which he loaned to the film for historical accuracy in constructing props.

Mick Jagger: Jagger – the film’s producer – is sitting at a dinner table at the dance. Cameo role.
