06/09/2024: Iran’s Assassins, Red and Green, Pink

While Iran’s backing of Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon is widely known, the regime is quietly carrying out a shadow war in the U.S. and Europe, deploying proxy assassins to silence or eliminate critics of the regime. Britain’s head of counter-terrorism policing, Matt Jukes, tells correspondent Lesley Stahl they’re noticing a significant uptick in Iran’s efforts. In the U.S., Stahl meets some of the targets, including former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton and Iranian American activist Masih Alinejad. Correspondent Bill Whitaker reports from the conservative state of Wyoming and meets with its surprisingly climate-crusading Republican governor, Mark Gordon. Currently in his second term, Gordon has set a goal to make Wyoming not just carbon-neutral but carbon-negative in CO2 emissions. It’s an audacious idea, since Wyoming is the nation’s largest coal-producer by far. Despite heat from climate change deniers in his own party, Gordon tells Whitaker he’s sticking to his goal, and to his “all of the above” approach to energy. Cecilia Vega profiles international punk rock, pop princess, Alecia Moore - also known as Pink - as she hits 25 years of her successful music-making career. Vega meets Pink at her home in California, stops backstage on her tour and traces her somewhat troubled journey to superstardom.

06/02/2024: Fake Electors, Prisoner of Iran, Rich Paul

In the aftermath of President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election, Republicans in seven states where he won, including Wisconsin, banded together and cast fake electoral votes for Donald Trump. Correspondent Anderson Cooper reports on Wisconsin's fake presidential electors and interviews Andrew Hitt, an attorney and former GOP state chair, who claims he and his fellow fake electors were tricked into signing the documents. Special Counsel Jack Smith alleges the fake votes were part of a plan, orchestrated by Donald Trump and conspirators, to try to overturn the election. Margaret Brennan conducts the first interview with one of the five American prisoners freed from Iran. With 200 hostages reportedly being held in Gaza, and 13 Americans unaccounted for, Emad Shargi’s harrowing story is a stark illustration of the difficulties and perils involved in bringing citizens home.

05/19/2024: Pope Francis, Cuban Spycraft, The Album

Norah O'Donnell meets Pope Francis for a rare and historic interview at his home, the Santa Marta guest house in Vatican City, a week before the Catholic Church hosts its inaugural World Children's Day. The 87-year-old, Argentinian-born pope - the first named Francis and first from the Americas - is known for his dedication to the poor and marginalized, and for being the most unconventional head of the Church in recent memory. He spoke candidly with O’Donnell about the wars in Israel and Gaza, Ukraine, and the migration crises around the world and on the U.S. southern border.The wide-ranging conversation also touches upon the Church's handling of its own sexual abuse scandals; Francis' deep commitment to inclusiveness within the Church; the backlash against his papacy from certain corners of U.S. Catholicism; and an exploration of his thinking on surrogate parenthood. For decades, prolific Cuban spies working in the U.S. government, serving in high profile positions with top security clearances, have evaded American intelligence officials. Correspondent Cecilia Vega reports from Washington, D.C. and Miami on the stories of two such undercover agents, former U.S. Ambassador Victor Manuel Rocha and onetime Pentagon official Ana Montes. Cuba continues to supply one of the most dangerous exports to American adversaries around the world: American secrets. When a photo album depicting Nazis socializing at dinner parties and picnics arrived at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2007, historians weren’t sure what to make of it. After an extensive investigation, it turned out to be a rare personal scrapbook of a high-ranking Nazi officer who helped run the daily operations of Auschwitz, the concentration camp where more than a million people, mostly Jews, were murdered. Correspondent Anderson Cooper tells the story behind the album and why acclaimed theater director Moises Kaufman decided to turn it into a new Off Broadway play called HERE THERE ARE BLUEBERRIES.

Norah O’Donnell profiles Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, the Democratic leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, who might become the first ever Black Speaker of the House, by tracing his Brooklyn roots to one of the most powerful positions in American politics. O’Donnell meets Jeffries on Capitol Hill to talk about his caucus’s decision to save current Speaker Mike Johnson’s job, his views on Israel’s approach to Hamas and the civilian casualties in Gaza, the migrant crisis, and how the debate over reproductive rights will impact the race for the White House and Congress. As the American wealth gap continues to widen, correspondent Jon Wertheim reports on an unlikely effort to get more money in the hands of rank-and-file workers. Pete Stavros is an executive at one of the biggest private equity firms in the country, KKR. His industry is famously cutthroat, but Stavros has emerged as a leading advocate for the concept of employee ownership, which takes the same incentives that have long helped the C-suite get rich and applies them to people working factories, flatbeds and farms. Wertheim travels to rural Illinois to find out how this model has impacted workers, and whether it’s good for business. CorrespondentBill Whitakervisits New Orleans where two high school seniors solved a mathematical puzzle that was thought to be impossible for 2,000 years.

12/17/2023: The Hostage Story, Looting of Cambodia, Gnawa

Almost three months into the Israel-Hamas war, correspondent Lesley Stahl returns to the region and speaks with a freed Israeli hostage ​in her first interview since spending more than 50 days in captivity by Hamas in Gaza. Stahl visits the remnants of her family's home in the kibbutz following the Oct. 7 attacks and speaks with the survivor and her relatives. A year-long investigation by 60 MINUTES examines what might be the greatest art heist in history: the theft of thousands of sacred stone, bronze and gold artifacts from religious sites across Cambodia. Correspondent Anderson Cooper reports on Douglas Latchford, the British dealer who masterminded the looting amidst genocide, civil war and political turmoil and sold to the world's wealthiest collectors and most prestigious museums. Cambodia's government has spent the last ten years tracking it all down and wants their history and heritage brought home. Correspondent Bill Whitaker traces the musical legacy of Gnawa music that for centuries was only played in secret ceremonies by enslaved Black Africans brought to Morocco during the Middle Ages. Those ancient rhythms helped give rise to the American Blues. Today, Gnawa is exploding in popularity. Whitaker joins hundreds of thousands of music fans to travel to the Ground Zero of Gnawa: the seaside town of Essaouira on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Whitaker meets Gnawa masters and the Western musicians who join them for a taste of the Moroccan Blues.

12/10/2023: The Resistance, Red and Green, Novak Djokovic

After Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, people were faced with the decision to flee or fight. Correspondent Scott Pelley reports from the capital city of Kherson, a mile from ongoing Russian shelling, and speaks with civilians who resisted the occupation about how they defended their region. Correspondent Bill Whitaker reports from the conservative state of Wyoming and meets with its surprisingly climate-crusading Republican governor, Mark Gordon. Currently in his second term, Gordon has set a goal to make Wyoming not just carbon-neutral but carbon-negative in CO2 emissions. It’s an audacious idea, since Wyoming is the nation’s largest coal-producer by far. Despite heat from climate change deniers in his own party, Gordon tells Whitaker he’s sticking to his goal, and to his “all of the above” approach to energy. At 36-years-old, Novak Djokovic is one of the most dominant athletes in professional sports, having captured 24 major tennis singles titles, more than his longtime rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. He is now considered the greatest men’s tennis player of all time. Correspondent Jon Wertheim goes inside the mind of the record-breaking star in his hometown of Belgrade, Serbia and speaks with him about his vaccination controversy at the Australian Open, his work promoting tennis player equity and the reason why he plans to stay on the court.
