I`ve just watched this excellent show on PBS/OETA World channel. Check 
your listings --
Altho leading up to smartphone, a quick history of communications from 
fire signals to Morse code to Hedy Lamarr and beyond. And yes, that`s 
Patrick Stewart narrating.
Appears to be the last in the series. Previous episodes well worth 
watching too.

Sehr interessanter Beitrag mit einem Streifzug durch die Geschichte der 
Kommunikation seit der Antike (optische Fern-Kommunikation), 
Frequenz-Sprungverfahren von Hedy Lamarr
und auch:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIGSALY
SIGSALY used a random noise mask to encrypt voice conversations which 
had been encoded by a vocoder. The latter was used both to minimize the 
amount of redundancy (which is high in voice traffic), and also to 
reduce the amount of information to be encrypted.
The voice encoding used the fact that speech varies fairly slowly as the 
components of the throat move. The system extracts information about the 
voice signal around 25 times a second.
     ten channels covering the telephone passband (250 Hz – 2,950 Hz); 
are rectified and filtered to extract how much energy is in each of 
these channels.
     another signal indicating whether the sound is voiced or unvoiced;
     if voiced, a signal indicating the pitch; this also varied at less 
than 25 Hz....."
