On a cold dark December day in 2015, a tall grey haired man entered a London station, bought a return train ticket to Manchester but never came back. The following day his body was found on Saddleworth Moor, above Oldham. He was poorly dressed for the weather and carried few clues to identify him - no phone, no wallet, no passport or driving licence.For twelve months his identity remained a mystery. With exclusive access to the year long investigation by detectives from Greater Manchester Police, The Man on the Moor tells the remarkable story of their painstaking work to identify him and to understand his death.
