For a decade, the Sligo gardaí and Interpol have worked together to try to find out who the man calling himself Peter Bergmann really was. Nobody has ever come forward to identify him and he lies buried in an unmarked grave in Sligo. Will we ever find out his true identity?
2. The Golden Man
It became clear that the man calling himself Peter Bergmann had deliberately chosen Sligo as a place to come to disappear. He gave a false name and address at the hotel. He secretly disposed of his possessions. Everything pointed to a plan to vanish into the Atlantic at night – but the autopsy revealed more hidden secrets

Our very own Somerton Man!
The parallels are eerily similar between Yeats’ writings appearing to play a role as the Tamám Shud does for the Somerton Man.
I could listen to Rosita Borland read the phone book!
Compelling subject but executed in a very basic way. No tension or engagement to listen on. I understand that it would’ve been financially restrained but once you’ve experienced other more superior offerings it’s difficult not to critique heavily. The title is so arbitrary ‘Atlantic’ ???? And the soundscape is so poor. Otherwise I listened to all three and it’s still a bizarre and fascinating story.
Enjoying so far
