Take the Fight to the Night – California firefighters battling some of the worst wildfires in state history have a new weapon: a fleet of high-tech helicopters – including the heavy-duty Chinook that carries ten times the water other helicopters can. They can fight the blazes at night, too. "A game-changer," says one fire chief. Bill Whitaker reports. 

Rep. Liz Cheney – Lesley Stahl profiles the Wyoming congresswoman whose criticism of Donald Trump has put her at odds with many of her own constituents and jeopardizes her re-election to the House. 

King of the Deep – When Alexey Molchanov broke his latest world record diving to 430 feet using one breath, 60 Minutes was there to capture the feat. Sharyn Alfonsi reports on the extreme sport of freediving and its king, a man making a name for himself and his sport.

60 Minutes has been on the air since 1968, beginning on a Tuesday, but spending most of its time on Sundays, where it remains today. This popular news magazine provides both hard hitting investigations, interviews and features, along with people in the news and current events. 60 Minutes has set unprecedented records in the Nielsen’s ratings with a number 1 rating, five times, making it among the most successful TV programs in all of television history. This series has won more Emmy awards than any other news program and in 2003, Don Hewitt, the creator (back in 1968), was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Emmy, along with the 60 Minute correspondents. Added to the 11 Peabody awards, this phenomenally long-lived series has collected 78 awards up to the 2005 season and remains among the viewers top choice for news magazine features.
