60 Minutes July 19

This week 60 Minutes looks at iceberg harvesting and a paedophile scandal that needs to be seen to be believed.

Special Investigation: Spies, Lords and Predators
It’s shaping up to be the biggest political scandal in Britain’s history. There is new evidence that some of the country’s most respected men were in fact depraved paedophiles. Leaders that were preying on children as young as eight and nine. Many of the kids were trafficked from state-run homes and other institutions to be abused by MPs, Lords, and spies. They were protected from on high by a secret code, and have never been held to account for their horrific crimes. This Sunday, 60 Minutes investigates the scandal and the cover up, speaks to the victims and the witnesses, and confronts a member of the notorious paedophile information exchange. Reporter Ross Coulthart also reveals how children were killed in order to protect this network of predators – and how the driver to the Australian High Commissioner could hold the key to blowing this case wide open.

The Cold Rush
At the very top of the world, a hot new business is booming in the freezing waters off Canada. The business is iceberg harvesting – and the cold rush is on. Fishermen turned cowboys are hunting, shooting and lassoing these giant blocks of ice before taking their catch to market. You see, these icebergs make water so pure it’s like nothing you have ever drunk. As Charles Wooley discovered, the vodka is pretty good too.
