Meeting the candidates (in 1968)

As Scott Pelley says in his introduction of this week's hour-long broadcast on presidential race, the 60 Minutes tradition of covering the candidates began with our very first episode in 1968. Even from the start, our extended format allowed viewers to spend real time with the candidates, rather than hearing shortened soundbites out of context. In this week's Rewind feature, you'll get a taste of that first hour-long episode with rare documentary footage from the presidential race of 1968.
