Abstract: We describe two new algorithms for the efficient and rigorous computation of Dirichlet L-functions and their use to verify the Generalised Riemann Hypothesis for all such L-functions associated with primitive characters of modulus $ q\leq 400\,000$. We check, to height, $ \textrm {max}\left (\frac {10^8}{q},\frac {A\cdot 10^7}{q}+200\right )$ with $ A=7.5$ in the case of even characters and $ A=3.75$ for odd characters. In addition we confirm that no Dirichlet L-function with a modulus $ q\leq 2\,000\,000$ vanishes at its central point.
