50 Years of 60 Minutes Airs Sunday

By Chris Ariens 

As it continues to celebrate its 50th season, 60 Minutes will air a retrospective show Sunday night in its normal 7 p.m. ET timeslot.

CBS says the commemorative broadcast “relives the big moments, the famous people and the faraway places from five decades of America’s favorite news magazine.”

Fifty Years of 60 MINUTES features stories from the archive and insights from the show’s correspondents and ep Jeff Fager. From Ed Bradley’s interview of Mick Jagger, to the famous Bill and Hillary Clinton post-Super Bowl appearance, to interviews with world leaders, including Barack Obama, Bashar al-Assad, and the Ayatollah Khomeini to celebrities like Johnny Carson, Muhammad Ali, and Beyoncé.
