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.
