Don’t miss another riveting lineup on “60 MINUTES,” airing from 7:00 to 8:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network. This week, the show delves into crucial topics that are making headlines and shaping our world.

142 Days in Gaza

For nearly five months, Israeli forces have been heavily bombing and conducting ground operations in Gaza, leading to the destruction of cities and the displacement of over a million people, as a reaction to Hamas’s terror attacks on October 7. The conflict has resulted in the death of more than 29,000 Palestinians. Sharyn Alfonsi, a correspondent for 60 MINUTES, delves into the ongoing conflict and the critical state of Gaza’s humanitarian aid and healthcare system, through footage captured by CBS and stories from an American doctor and aid worker in Gaza, providing a glimpse into the grave circumstances that are difficult for international journalists to independently report from the 25-mile-long area. Ashley Velie produced this segment.


Lesley Stahl, in a special report from China for 60 MINUTES, highlights her visit as one of the limited number of Western journalists allowed into the country since 2020, following the Chinese government’s decision to expel some journalists and limit others under President Xi Jinping’s administration. Her report includes an interview with Nicholas Burns, the U.S. ambassador to China, discussing the strained relations between the U.S. and China, issues surrounding American and foreign investment amid new espionage laws and intellectual property concerns, and the challenges facing China’s economy as it deals with an aging and declining population, in addition to the aftermath of the strict zero-COVID policy. This comprehensive segment extends over two parts, with Richard Bonin as the producer for the first part, and both he and Mirella Brussani as co-producers for the second.
