Luke's Morse message, visually rendered by Mr Smith as a series of dots and dashes. (TV: The Man Who Never Was)

Morse code was a symbolic representation of the alphabet, in which letters were represented by a series of sonic bursts of varying lengths. These bursts were visually represented by dots and dashes. The code allowed for messages to be compiled, one letter at a time, and sent between any two parties who could understand them.
