Notes & Transcripts

A woman vacationing near a beach in Germany has found a message in a bottle that was set afloat more than 100 years ago. Marianne Winkler, a retired post office worker, was walking down a beach on the German North Sea island of Amrum when she found the bottle that had been sent out by British scientist George Parker Bidder in 1906. Bidder originally released more than 1,000 bottle designed to float above the sea floor to study ocean currents. Each bottle contained a postcard with instructions in three languages asking the finder to return it to the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth England in exchange for a shilling. Most were returned within a few months, enabling Bidder to confirm his theory that deep sea currents flowed west in the North Sea. Winkler followed the instructions on the bottle and broke it open to find the postcard still intact more than a century later. She said, “It’s always a joy when someone finds a message in a bottle on the beach.” —Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
