Three more stories will give viewers a new perspective on the world around them when the stopwatch starts ticking for 60 Minutes on Sunday, June 23. This week’s subjects include DNA evidence in the case of Michael Morton, a protest in Russia, and the design company IDEO. Here’s what’s scheduled on this broadcast.
60 Minutes: DNA Evidence Proves Innocence
Michael Morton spent 25 years in prison for a crime he never committed. What was it that finally got him his freedom back? Irrefutable DNA evidence came to light that exonerated Morton more than two decades after the crime in question.
Morton spoke to 60 Minutes and Lara Logan about his story, which is unfortunately not as rare as we would like in the American justice system. Why are so many innocent people behind bars? Can Michael’s personal story make an impact? Prosecutors are in the spotlight on this edition of 60 Minutes.
60 Minutes: Russian Crackdown
They were a protest punk band whose most famous performance lasted only a moment. More than a year later, the Russian group Pussy Riot is not headlining a tour. Instead, some of them are in prison and others are in hiding after a crackdown by the Russian government over their anti-government rally in a Moscow cathedral.
How did a viral video and a growing sense of outrage spark a cause that has had many speaking out around the world? Lesley Stahl is talking about the Free Pussy Riot movement for 60 Minutes.
60 Minutes: IDEO Design
Look around you. Wherever you are at this moment, chances are you are surrounded by objects that were very intentionally designed. Now Charlie Rose is getting some insight into the process that brings us everything from the Apple mouse to a toothpaste tube that stands up on its own.
IDEO is a California company that uses insights into our behavior as a species in its popular and functional design work. CEO David Kelley is speaking about the company’s work and philosophy on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, airing June 23. Don’t miss it!
