60 MINUTES: Volumes 1 & 2

Volume 1: This collection provides 3,400+ segments from 17 years of broadcasts, including hundreds of segments not available anywhere else in the world. True to 60 MINUTES’ style, each news segment serves as a standalone short documentary on a specific news topic. In addition, segments are included from the popular CBS News program Sunday Morning, whose timely news pieces, cultural features, and newsmaker profiles form an ideal complement to 60 MINUTES content.

NEW! Volume 2: Building on the success of the 60 MINUTES: 1997-2014 collection, we recently released Volume 2, extending our coverage from 2015-2025. This product provides students, faculty, and researchers with access to news coverage, investigative reporting, and feature segments of the most important global issues of our time. This collection will also include segments from 60 MINUTES II spanning 1999-2005, for even more comprehensive historical coverage.
