About this item

A history of 60 Minutes--the iconic American TV news broadcast--going behind the scenes of the most famous breakthrough stories of its remarkable fifty-year run to reveal the secrets of the program's success. Fifty Years of 60 Minutes tells the inside story of the legendary program, from its almost accidental birth through five decades of in-depth reporting by talented producers and beloved correspondents, including fatherly Harry Reasoner, hard-charging Mike Wallace, writer's-writer Morley Safer, soft-but-tough Ed Bradley, relentless Lesley Stahl, and illuminating storyteller Steve Kroft. Executive producer Jeff Fager zeroes in on the stories that changed history--from the tobacco industry expose to the revelatory interview with scandal-plagued Bill Clinton--the ones that set the standard in nonfiction storytelling, what the program learned from its mistakes, and the human drama that made it all possible.
