Broadcast on: 9 November 2008
Director: Scott Peley
Abstract: 60 Minutes is going to take you to one of the most toxic places on Earth: a place that government officials and gangsters don’t want you to see. It’s a town in China where you can’t breathe the air or drink the water, a town where the blood of the children is laced with lead. It’s worth risking a visit because, as correspondent Scott Pelley first reported last November, much of the poison is coming out of the homes, schools and offices of America.
