“60 MINUTES” LISTINGS FOR SUNDAY, NOV. 13
THE SURFSIDE MYSTERY – Investigators still do not know what triggered the collapse of a 12-story beachfront condominium in Surfside, Fla., last summer, killing 98 people. Newly enacted laws will require mandatory inspections of older condos in Florida, and millions of owners there will soon be required to set aside vast sums of money for potential repairs. Sharyn Alfonsi reports on the federal and local investigations and how the catastrophe is expected to impact the affordability of condo living for hundreds of thousands of Floridians. Guy Campanile is the producer.
PAPER BRIGADE – Jon Wertheim reports from Lithuania on a group of resistance fighters who risked their lives to save a trove of Jewish artifacts during and after the Holocaust. Today, 80 years later, their heroics are still unfolding, with a search-and-rescue mission underway in Vilnius, where hidden materials continue to be uncovered. Julie Holstein is the producer.
SONA AND THE KORA – Lesley Stahl profiles Sona Jobarteh, the first female virtuoso player of a centuries-old West African instrument called the kora. With 21 strings, it’s described as a cross between a harp, lute and guitar. The kora is part of a musical tradition passed down exclusively from father to son in a special set of families in West Africa. Jobarteh, who is 39 years old, descends from one of those griot families – she’s the daughter of a Gambian father and a British mother. Jobarteh argues that by breaking tradition, she is keeping it alive, and she’s gained acceptance in the toughest place of all: The Gambia, with a hit song that’s become the country’s unofficial anthem. Shari Finkelstein is the producer.
