Synopsis: 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. Fifty Years of 60 Minutes shares the secret of what's made the program exceptional for all these years and how it has maintained such high quality to this day: why founder Don Hewitt believed "hearing" a story is more important than seeing it (and thus why he closed his eyes in the screening room), why competition was encouraged to preserve a sense of urgency, why the "small picture" is the best way to illuminate a larger one, and why the most memorable stories are almost always those with a human being at the center.
About the Author: Jeff Fager is in his fourteenth season as the Executive Producer of 60 Minutes. In 2011 he became the first chairman of CBS News and, drawing on the values of 60 Minutes, he led a revitalization of the news division, including the turnaround of CBS This Morning. He returned full-time to 60 Minutes in 2015. Fager was born in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He graduated from Colgate University in 1977 with a B.A. degree in English.
