60 Minutes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

60 Minutes is an American television news program created in 1968. Don Hewitt created the program and set it apart by using a unique style of reporter-centered investigation. In 2002, 60 Minutes was ranked No. 6 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.[1]

The show pioneered many of the most important investigative journalism procedures and techniques, including re-editing interviews, hidden cameras, and "gotcha journalism" visits to the home or office of an investigative subject.[3] Imitators sprang up in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom during the 1970s, as well as on local television news.[3]

Initially, 60 Minutes aired as a bi-weekly show hosted by Harry Reasoner and Mike Wallace, debuting on September 24, 1968, and alternating weeks with other CBS News productions on Tuesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. The first edition, described by Reasoner in the opening as a "kind of a magazine for television," featured the following segments:
