Where Is George Gibney? Our International Investigative Podcast Series Is Coming Soon To The BBC
A new major investigative podcast series produced by Second Captains and presented by our own Mark Horgan was announced earlier this month in London. In August 2020, Where is George Gibney? will be broadcast on BBC Sounds and will be the culmination of 2 years work from the Second Captains team.
If you have any information, however minor, that you think could help the producers, please contact us confidentially at WhereIsGeorgeGibney@bbc.co.uk
George Gibney was an internationally-renowned Olympic swimming coach. He was a charismatic celebrity in his native Ireland. He regularly appeared on television screens and across newspaper headlines. He was also charged with 27 counts of sexual abuse of young swimmers but never stood trial. Instead, he vanished.
Mark travels across continents – from Ireland and the UK to the US – speaking to the people Gibney tried to silence for decades, as well as those who tried to help him. The podcast asks how has he escaped justice for so many years? Does he still have access to children? Who is protecting him? Where Is George Gibney?
Please contact Mark at WhereIsGeorgeGibney@bbc.co.uk if you have any information you would like to share. Once again, all information will be treated entirely confidentially.
BIG NEWS: We’re proud to present a brand-new, international investigative podcast series produced by Second Captains & presented by @younghorgan.
