60 Minutes: Capitol Dome Restoration
Did you know that the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., is 150 years old? Scott Pelley is taking us on a close, personal tour of the facility, which has not been refurbished in about five decades, until now.
That’s all changing, and as part of his story, Pelley explained the history of a building that became cemented into the nation’s culture as part of the Washington skyline. How are we preserving it for future generations?
60 Minutes: Paraguay Recycled Orchestra
In the city of Cateura in Paraguay, residents essentially live in a garbage dump. In fact, recycling is their way of life. That’s why it’s not particularly surprising to learn that they have gotten creative and turn a lot of trash into newfound treasure.
Now the Recycled Orchestra is playing to international acclaim, proving that humble beginnings sometimes set the stage for remarkable opportunity. Learn how even the country’s most famous musicians are taking part in the musical education of a new generation coming from an unlikely place, and what it means to the children to have music as an outlet for expression.
