Special: '35 Years And 60 Minutes'

The Best Moments And Most Unforgettable Characters

The special moments and unforgettable people who helped make 60 Minutes the longest running, most successful primetime broadcast in history will be featured in "35 Years And 60 Minutes," a special edition of the news magazine to be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

From the lovable likes of Katharine Hepburn and Tom Hanks, to loathsome lowlifes like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, to cultural icons like Jerry Seinfeld, Clint Eastwood, Jackie Gleason and the Rolling Stones, "35 Years And 60 Minutes" represents decades of the delectable and the detestable.

Seinfeld discussing his salary and his sexuality, Gleason playing pool and Muhammad Ali playing a joke on a 60 Minutes correspondent are just a few of the tasty treats offered.

Packed in between are the pithy insights of Andy Rooney that still confound and captivate, before he ends the broadcast in tradition style with an essay to commemorate 35 years of television's finest hour.

There are also some hilarious outtakes. In one never seen before, Correspondent Bob Simon proves he's better at telling stories about bullfighters than trying to be one himself.
