TAIWAN – As tensions keep rising between the U.S. and China over Taiwan, 60 MINUTES’ Lesley Stahl travels to the island – a progressive, thriving democracy – to see how people on the ground are reacting and preparing for the possibility of a Chinese invasion. Shachar Bar-On and Jacqueline Williams are the producers.
WHAT HAPPENED AT GRIZZLY FLATS – 60 MINUTES’ Bill Whitaker visits the rural community of Grizzly Flats in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada that was almost wiped out in one of the worst wildfires in California’s history. A year after the fire, angry residents are demanding answers from the U.S. Forest Service, whom they blame for letting a small fire get out of control and turn into a catastrophe. Through Freedom of Information Act requests and eye-witness testimony, Whitaker seeks to uncover what happened in those crucial first days of the Caldor fire. Heather Abbott is the producer.
CAPTAIN KOLISI – Correspondent Jon Wertheim profiles South Africa’s first Black rugby captain, Siya Kolisi, whose team, the Springboks, won the 2019 Rugby World Cup. For a century, the Springboks have been a symbol of the nation’s oppressive white minority rule. In post-apartheid South Africa, Kolisi is keenly aware of the challenges of transforming the team. Wertheim follows Kolisi’s long and unexpected road to rugby glory as he uses the sport to help bind a country still riven by inequality and racial divisions. Michael Gavshon is the producer.
